Edwin Bark, Senior Vice President and General Manager, EMEA, brings 25 years of vast international experience in FMCG. His past roles include several years as Managing Director of Nestle’s European Plant-Based Food Division, where he was credited for re-igniting the brand, fuelling innovation, and expanding the brand’s portfolio of plant-based meat products across six new European markets. Through his non-executive positions at alternative food companies, Bark is high-connected to the eco-system and most recently led the establishment of the largest plant-based meat manufacturing plant in Europe.

Following Redefine Meat’s successful launch in Israel, with significant market acceptance and endorsement from chefs and consumers, Bark will manage the company’s commercial expansion of New Meat into Europe. This also includes building the organizational infrastructure of the EMEA business, establishing a best-in-class manufacturing and supply chain, and driving the multi-channel go-to-market strategy.

“I am very passionate about health and sustainability, and fully committed to helping repair the world’s broken food system by disrupting the meat industry with New-Meat,” commented Bark. “Over the years, I have worked on many of the plant-based products available today, and I can genuinely say that what the company has achieved so far is nothing short of revolutionary. I’m already hard at work to ensure the European business is set up for success and have no doubt that New-Meat will disrupt the disrupters.”

Adrian Sagman, Director of Global Sales and Business Development, with a decade of senior business and marketing roles at Unilever Food Solutions Europe, Sagman was responsible for creating business strategies for high-value food products at an international and local level. He also brings 13 years experience of in managing exports and sales in the food industry, including as Director of Export for the Strauss Group, the largest food manufacturer in Israel.

“I’m proud to play my part in making New Meat mainstream across the globe,” said Sagman. “Redefine Meat perfectly aligns with my experience of expanding businesses into new territories and creating market demand. But there is also something special about this company: the quality and diversity of products, the technological innovation behind it, and the inspirational team at the helm who share my vision of making this world a better place.”

With a focus on worldwide sales and the market introduction of new product categories, Sagman will play a pivotal role in establishing Redefine Meat as a top global meat business. Most notably, Sagman’s primary objectives are to optimize the company’s worldwide go-to-market strategy, build global partnerships, and drive sales across food services and retail.

Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, CEO and Co-Founder of Redefine Meat added, “Following the incredible reaction to our commercial launch in Israel this summer, we are now ready to bring New-Meat to consumers around the world – starting with Europe next month, and continuing with the US and Asia next year. Edwin and Adrian’s experience in scaling businesses and established networks across the food ecosystem will be invaluable in supporting our aggressive growth and taking the company to the world stage.”
