Vegan meal kit delivery startup Purple Carrot will feature prominent chefs in a new series to promote plant-based eating.

Vegan meal kit delivery startup Purple Carrot will launch its first ever Summer Guest Chef Series this Friday. The startup is partnering with prominent chefs, authors, plant-based advocates, and bloggers such as Rich Landau of award-winning Philadelphia restaurant Vedge, Executive Chef of New York-based Mother of Pearl Daphne Cheng, and Food52 Vegan author Gena Hamshaw €œto create a unique experience that inspires a summer of plant-based eating,€ Purple Carrots CEO and founder Andy Levitt said. €œWeve partnered with some of the best chefs and recipe developers around the country whose meals blew us away in order to give our customers something really special this summer.€ Purple Carrot raised $5 million in investment last month from Windsail Capital and plans to use funds to promote plant-based meals to a wider audience.
