What started in 2014 with two guys, a big idea, and a shared passion for cheese, has quickly grown into a company on a mission to create a world of delicious animal-free dairy products. We thought: Why give up our favorite foods? There must be a better way. And so we brought together a diverse team of chefs, food designers, nutritionists, scientists, engineers, and one office dog, Sophie.
Instead of having cows do all the work, we craft our milk with a process similar to craft brewing. Using yeast and age-old fermentation techniques, we make the very same milk proteins that cows make. Then we add a special mix of plant-based sugars, fats, and nutrients to craft a totally new kind of dairy-free milk that delivers the same great taste as cow’s milk and none of the chemicals, hormones, lactose, or other nonsense.
Our process uses far fewer resources that factory farmed dairy:
• 98% less water
• 91% less land
• 84% less greenhouse gas
• 65% less energy
We’re hard at work on research and development and will be introducing our first products in 2017.
Perfect Day, a producer of animal-free dairy proteins, has raised $24.7 million in Series A funding. Temasek led the round with participation from other investors that included Horizons Ventures, Continental Grain, Iconiq Capital and Lion Ventures.
