Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

WHy the name kompas?

(compas)sion

but with a k because it’s 2019 and we’re a tech company 🤓 Also, a compass is a navigation tool that points you in the right direction, and we like to think we’re pointing you to nothing but great food that happens to save the World.

WHEN WILL KOMPAS BE AVAILABLE?

Tomorrow. Ugh, we wish. For lots of reasons, making a tool that simplifies life is actually really complicated. We plan to launch in the App Store and Google Play Store by the end of 2019!

HOW DO YOU QUALIFY DISHES AS PLANT-BASED?

We work directly with our incredible City Leaders and restaurants to list accurate menu items and the ways in which you can modify dishes to become plant-based.

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF PLANT-BASED?

Just plants. No animal products (dairy, fish, chicken, beef, pork, lamb, shellfish, gelatin, feces, etc).

HOW CAN I HELP?

We’re looking for City Leaders in each and every part of the World to help list the best plant-based dishes in their area - sign up here.
If you don’t want to commit to being a City Leader, it helps immensely to follow us on Instagram and Facebook, sign up for our email newsletters, and connect us to every human you know who is interested in the plant-based movement and making this World a better place!

IS KOMPAS ONLY FOR VEGANS?

NO. Kompas is for diet haters, flexitarians, gluten-free, pescatarians, Keto-crazed, Paleo people on a mission to make the World a better place by way of food. We understand that not everyone can (or wants to) be vegan, and we are here to make it simpler to eat plant-based foods everywhere you go.
