What pushed Phil to this idea is to reduce the six billion pounds of produce that is wasted every year and reducing meat consumption and pollution caused by the meat processing industry.
According to Phil Wong, Misfit Foods sausages had been around for less than a year but they already were able to generate $800,000 in sales. His forecast for 2021 was to reach $1.2 million sales of sausage. The sausages are selling for $5.99-$7.99 while it costs him to make $2.91 per sausage sausage.
Two sharks is always better than one and in the end he accepted an offer from Mark and Daniel for $300,000 for 15 percent equity, making him reducing his company valuation. One thing to mention about Misfit Foods packaging is that their are recyclable, and the liner insulation is water-soluble and composable.
