Tiny Team. Mighty Mission.

Hi, nice to meet you. We go by Mighty Spark Food Co.

Founded in 2010 by then college student Nick Beste with a stand at the Minneapolis Farmers Market, we’re an independent company on a quest to disrupt the meat and snack aisles with remarkable food that does good, one meal at a time. For each purchase of Mighty Spark’s small-batch meat, we provide a meal to a child in need. Thanks to the support of our consumers, we’ve donated more 1 million meals in 2017, and we’re on track to donate millions more because we believe in paying it forward.

Our small but mighty team is hard at work refining our small-batch recipes to bring you the best meat possible. No compromises.

The farmers market spark
What started in 2010 as one small tent, two folding tables and a couple of students out to challenge the ordinary quickly took on a life of its own. Our first day at the market took us by surprise as we sold out of our hand-crafted meat within hours. The following week, we doubled our supply and were faced with the same shortfall. That’s how we knew we were on to something real.

In 2014, our Man Cave Meats product hit store shelves at our first retail partner – Lunds & Byerly’s. Since then, we’ve been tirelessly working with retailers nationwide to provide consumers with better-tasting meats, challenging the norms of what’s expected from brands in the meat aisle.

Sparking a movement

In spring 2018, Mighty Spark Food Co. launched with a rapid expansion to retailers from coast to coast, delivering on our mission to provide you with remarkable food that does good.

Thanks to our consumers, we’re sparking a movement by donating a meal to kids in need for each product purchased, with more than 1 million meals donated and millions more on the horizon.
