We’re excited to announce a new partnership that represents a major milestone on our journey to reinvent dairy. Perfect Day has entered into a Joint Development Agreement with Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), a global leader in food ingredients based in Illinois, to scale up the production of dairy proteins using fermentation in microflora.
This will be the first time in world history that dairy proteins are produced at large scale via fermentation instead of using farmed animals.
ADM has a strong reputation of expertise within the food industry and a track record of producing high quality food ingredients. It’s hard to overstate their impact; if you live in the United States, it’s virtually guaranteed you’ve eaten a food product containing ADM ingredients.
Our first project with ADM is an animal-free whey protein that can be used in a wide variety of food products, across many different categories and geographies. Through this partnership we will leverage ADM’s existing fermentation infrastructure to bring the cost of producing animal-free whey protein down to that of conventional whey protein. This will allow us to bring our new source of nutritious protein to full commercial scale within the next few years.
Don’t worry – you won’t have to wait years to try Perfect Day. We are forging relationships with food and beverage companies, big and small, that are excited about the new products and experiences our protein will enable. Look out for more updates next year.
Of course, for us, the excitement isn’t just about what you’ll see in restaurants and grocery stores. Governments, nonprofits, and citizens around the world have expressed interest in our approach as a means of providing sustainable and affordable protein to undernourished populations, or bringing protein independence to regions that today import almost all their dairy.
If you’d like to learn more about this collaboration, or your brand is interested in working with Perfect Day ingredients, please say hello.
Our dream – to make the world kinder and greener while empowering people to enjoy the foods they love – is finally starting to come true. Thank you for supporting us on this journey. And now… Back to work!
