Macro-Balanced™ Frozen Foods Startup Committed to Being 100% Not Vegan™
BENTONVILLE – March 25, 2023 – “Plant-based meat is inhumane . . . to humans,” said Counter™ Co-founder and CEO Jeff Ferrell. “We are committed to using REAL meat in our food because that is what tastes good to Americans. We are giving people the nutrition of a protein bar but with actual food. Counter’s frozen meals and burritos have 30g+ of protein, which is unparalleled in the frozen foods aisle.”
There is a growing population of consumers who see the value of eating a balance of macronutrients (aka “macros™”) to achieve their health goals. Counter calls out carbs, fat, and protein on the front of its packaging and has a more balanced nutritional profile.
“Keto has gained tremendous popularity over the last few years, but sadly the weight loss for most is not sustainable,” said Co-founder and COO Benn Manning. “We need to stop canceling carbs.”
Counter recently closed its $1.2 million Seed round with an all-star list of angel investors that includes Nick Greer (co-founder, CEO of Built Bar), Nate Lord (CFO of Goodles), and Tara Housley (EVP at Beauty Industry Group). In addition, Counter has 24 content creators from the macro counting, fitness, and nutrition industries who have invested. These influencers specialize in recipe development, weight loss coaching, and personal training and are highlighted on Counter’s website.
“There is a lot of confusion about what is considered nutritious food. Many people get caught up on all the different micronutrients and allergens – it’s great to see a brand focused on the bigger picture of macronutrients,” said Lord, former CFO of Kodiak Cakes.
Counter is a content creator-led brand that develops and sells macro-balanced frozen foods in grocery stores and warehouse clubs. All items are high-protein, low-calorie, and inspired by recipes that have gone viral on Instagram and TikTok. And believe it or not, it uses REAL meat in its products.
