Sadrah Schadel. As a lifelong vegetarian, Sadrah has some serious veg cred. Fueled by the fury of one too many veggie burgers with all the personality of cardboard, and many an evening dining on a conglomeration of side-dishes passed off as an ‘entree’ on restaurant menus, she decided to make it her mission to create plant-based proteins that truly inspire. Sadrah commands the test kitchen, makes the magic, shares the vision & is the voice of NEF.
Mike Wolliansky, co-founder of No Evil Foods. To tell Mike he can’t do something is one sure way to make sure he does it. His plant-based journey began as a simple experiment – the result of which became not only a passion but an opportunity to promote positive change. Not one to be led by the masses, his unique insight strikes a chord every time. Motivated by challenge, Mike is the wizard behind the curtain; he sketches the big picture, keeps the peace, engineers the details and has a really good scream.
