Hello, We Are Kompas
Using these two words as inspiration for accomplishing the ambitious goal of a plant-based planet, the name Kompas was born.
1. an instrument containing a magnetized pointer which shows the direction of magnetic north and bearings from it
1. contrive to accomplish something
passus (step or pace)
sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others
compati (suffer with)
Kompas provides the guidance and direction consumers need in order to eat more healthy, sustainable, plant-based foods - and then, the “K” makes it cool, right? 😉

After 8 years of navigating through menus and modifying dishes to adhere to the plant-based diet she decided there was a prodigious opportunity to create a company that would simplify the process of finding plant-based options nearby.
