Who is Kompas?
I’m Kristina Plummer, and I began my plant-based journey in 2011 with the realization that if I wouldn’t eat my dog, I shouldn’t eat any other animal. After 8 years of navigating through menus and modifying dishes to adhere to the plant-based diet, I decided there was a prodigious opportunity to create a company that would simplify the process of finding plant-based options nearby.
When will the Kompas app be available?
The Kompas app will be available to the public in November of 2019.
