Why does Papaya exist? 

Because your plant-curiosity makes the world a little more plant-forward.

Plant-based food systems are much less harsh on people and our planet, and the world and market is finally noticing. You’ve likely seen evidence of this around you: meatless CPG products are readily available at every supermarket; meal delivery is growing at a dizzying pace with a mountain of options (the majority of which are meat-based). 

But ordering plant-based food is way harder than it should be. Existing plant-based options are usually hidden or hard to find on delivery apps or restaurant menus.

Enter: Papaya. 

Papaya wants to create a large-scale marketplace that connects people with quality plant-based food. Beyond that, Papaya wants to connect eaters with the chefs and the systems behind the food, introduce them to new ingredients, create a culture of transparency about what’s in the food, and educate eaters in the community and our world.
