Miyoko Schinner, founder & CEO, Miyoko’s Creamery: I'm keeping up with the emerging new science and ways of making food through food tech using microbes, fermentation, 3D, cellular ag, and so on, in order to take animals out of the food system. Are we playing God? When will commercialization really happen? What are consumers looking for? Will we be able to stop the cruelty to animals and destruction to the planet in time?
Covid created huge demand for our products, and this year was a challenging one in terms of balancing health and safety measures (such as line and shift separation), supply chain issues, while meeting the skyrocketing demand. We've had to be nimble, think on our feet, and expedite projects with copackers, who are themselves facing increasing demand.
