Berkeley-based Perfect Day – which is creating ‘vegan’ dairy proteins without cows – is in talks with food industry partners about scaling up production in order to introduce dairy ingredients that vegans, vegetarians and dairy lovers alike can enjoy in products “in every aisle of the grocery store.”
Co-founder and CEO Ryan Pandya explains: “We had originally planned to develop our own consumer products first (eg. Perfect Day milk), but as we’ve been honing our go-to-market strategy, we’ve talked to so many brands that are interested in working with the ingredients we are developing, that it became clear that a b2b strategy made more sense, as we can impact every aisle of the grocery store, not just fresh dairy.
“We’re generating a whole new supply of cost-effective animal-free dairy protein into the food industry.”
