Perfect Day: A New Supply Chain for Protein

Tuesday, February 5, 2019 08:50 - 09:25

The global demand for nutritious animal protein such as dairy protein is expected to increase by more than 60% within the next thirty years. Extensive use of land, energy, and water as well as resulting greenhouse gas emissions related to animal farming are already taking a significant toll on the planet. At the same time more and more consumers are looking for alternative products to replace animal-based proteins within their diet.

Perfect Day is a food company headquartered in Berkeley, CA. With currently around 35 full-time employees, the company’s goal is to deliver sustainable and animal-free dairy products without compromise in taste, nutritional value, and quality. We currently focus on the manufacturing of dairy proteins, caseins and whey proteins, that are identical to what the cow provides.

Our approach is based on microbial fermentation processes, which are both scalable and safe. Our products are turned into yogurts, cheeses, ice creams, and more by chefs in a manner that is not different from standard manufacturing methods.
