Meat Us

When we first started this journey, we saw a
broken food system that didn’t serve us.

So we took matters into our own hands and began to educate ourselves by learning all we could in the kitchen.

How It Began

We made everything from scratch, grew our own food, tapped our own maple syrup, and gained a DIY-fueled confidence that made us want more.

In 2014, we pooled a little bit of savings and rolled a cooler full of Plant Meat to an Asheville, NC farmer’s market. We had no idea what to expect and didn’t know if anyone would even buy it. As it turns out, there were a lot of people interested in meat made from plants, and we sold out on the first day!

No Evil Foods is now coast-to-coast, leading the pack for environmentally sustainable, plant-based meats that feed and fuel the movement toward a better food system.

Sadrah Schadel

Co-Founder/CCO (Chief Creative Officer)

Sadrah is the force behind the Innovation and Creative departments of No Evil Foods. With a lifetime of plant-based experience, she’s got some serious veg cred. Before she was leading the conversation on how to create a socially-minded business, she was the original DIY-er at No Evil, developing and testing each recipe from her home kitchen.

Sadrah is a lifelong vegetarian and committed to spreading the good word about a plant-based lifestyle. In fact, she’s the one that showed her partner and CEO, Mike, that vegan food doesn’t suck. Her experience growing a radically different business from scratch has equipped her with a noteworthy sensibility that she parlays into speaking engagements and business summits around the country.

From her DIY approach to branding, to the way she drives the vision and message of No Evil Foods today, Sadrah is a true visionary committed to telling the authentic story of what it takes to craft a revolution.

Sadrah’s dedication to giving back and working to improve systems of oppression runs deep. Before she was changing the world with No Evil Foods, Sadrah worked in Employment Training & Development for non-profit organizations in the northeast and the San Francisco Bay Area, with a focus on chronically homeless, formerly incarcerated, and dual diagnosis populations. Her love of good food was honed through work in restaurant management in top dining destinations in Philadelphia and New York state.

Mike Woliansky

Co-Founder/CEO

If Sadrah is the visionary at No Evil Foods, Mike is the architect. Mike stands quiet and thoughtful (at his standing desk!) at the helm of a company whose fast-paced growth trajectory is actually hurtling through space at breakneck speed. Behind the scenes, Mike sketches the big picture, turning vision into reality. His plant-based journey began as a simple experiment, but became much more–not only a passion, but an opportunity to help drive positive change in the world. From a small DIY outfit that sold at local farmers markets, his determination helped grow No Evil Foods into a bonafide company with nationwide distribution and expansive production capabilities.

With every notch in a company’s growth, there’s an individual in the office with whole a lot of spreadsheets, and a few more gray hairs…or no hair at all! At No Evil Foods, that person is Mike Woliansky, our wizard behind the curtain.

Before the days of Plant Meat, Mike had a career in music, including performing and tour/band management from dirty basements to 10,000 seat arenas—screaming all along the way. It was here that he learned resourcefulness in the face of great odds against success, and experienced nearly every aspect of entrepreneurship and business management imaginable. He also spent time as a freelance writer, and cut his teeth in the food world at four star restaurants like The Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate.

Mike graduated from Penn State University with a BA in English and Minor in Business.

Our Team

We are a company powered by rad humans dedicated to the vision of a more just food system. Plain and simple, we love what we do and none of it would be possible without the kickass efforts of the team behind No Evil Foods.

Our People

As crafters of compromise-free Plant Meat, the whole process begins with a work family that reflects the kind of world we want to live in––sustainable, plant-centric, unique, and inclusive. We start by building community inside No Evil’s homebase, the Axis, gathering the raddest parts of each person, and combining them to make one unsinkable force for good.

Creating awesome Plant Meat demands a human touch, so we begin by creating an environment that supports health in all forms. Because let’s be real, work is where the majority of us spend the bulk of our lives and it shouldn’t suck.

We are a company that welcomes all people

We offer a living wage to our employees and paid-time off for everyone, even our hourly hustlers. We support health and sustainability with our Vegan at Work & Family Meal programs and our policies reflect inclusivity and safety for all.

Our mission is in the box, but it begins with simple ingredients and the hardworking hands that move it on down the line, from conception to craft to retail shelf.

People-powered Plant Meat pushers. Say that five times fast.
