Flavor 2.0: Welcome to
The Deliciousness Revolution.
WHAT WE DO
Bottom line: Alternative protein will never take off if it is not incredibly delicious.
We are a totally new kind of flavor company. We work with food producers to make meat replacements people actually want to eat.
Natural. Sustainable. Radically Delicious.
We make alt. meat delicious. Naturally
We use our Flavor Crafting platform, Harnessing the power of Solid State Fermentation to create super delicious flavor.
Simple, familiar ingredients (grains, legumes & vegetables). No Industrial materials, flavorings, or GMO. Beyond Clean Label.
Fermentation creates health-benefiting amino acids, antioxidents, vitamins & minerals.
100% plant-based. Made from whole foods using highly sustainable production methods.

Why we do what we do?
While the meat replacement space is exploding, almost all the meat we are “replacing" is large pieces of protein that sit in the middle of our plates.
But prime cuts and quality ground meat make up only about 40% of the meat market by volume.
Meanwhile a staggering 60% of meat is used to make other foods* more delicious.
*Think soups, stews, sauces, casseroles, grain & legume dishes, and thousands of prepared foods. Entire global cuisines from France to China, Italy to Japan are based on meat's capacity to make other foods more delicious.

There is no way to reduce our dependency on animal protein without addressing “the flavor function”
meat performs in the food system.
