Make a scalable impact on the world’s oldest industry

We fight climate change and mass extinction. We don’t make supplements for gym bros or crystal yogis, shiny science projects with impractical cost-structures, or any product that doesn’t move the needle on whether humans exist. Instead, we work on scalable, sustainable foods from plants that outcompete commodity animal products on the only factors that count: taste and cost. With us, join a team finding meaning in tackling hard problems that matter, while laughing at the absurdity that we really just make cheese.
