Perfect Day Is Working to Create Dairy-Free Products That Taste Real
More consumers are turning to dairy-free products for personal or environmental reasons. Tech startup Perfect Day is working to create dairy-free products that actually taste like dairy. Co-creator Ryan Pandya is a vegan and was inspired to create the startup as an effort to create a great tasting substitute without harming animals. Perfect Day has developed a technology that inserts certain DNA into different proteins. This offers the taste of dairy without using milk from an animal. So far, Perfect Day has raised $40 million in funding. They plan to create a number of different vegan products, including mayonnaise and protein bars.
“We’re developing a toolkit for the food industry,” says Pandya. “We can work with every brand under the sun.”
