Perfect Day partners with ADM to commercialise animal-free dairy proteins
Perfect Day is based out of San Francisco and was founded by Ryan Pandya and Perumal Gandhi. Perfect Day produces casein and whey via microbial fermentation (minus the cows) and has teamed up with global ingredients giant ADM to develop and commercialise a range of animal-free dairy products.
Perfect Day and ADM are the first to produce dairy proteins on an industrial scale via fermentation. All products made by Perfect Day are vegan-friendly and include lactose-free milk, cheese, yoghurt, and other dairy products.
CEO Ryan Pandya said: “ADM does a ton of large scale fermentation to produce ingredients such as citric acid and lysine, and they also make enzymes [via microbial fermentation], so they have the expertise and infrastructure and large scale assets already built that are perfectly compatible with our process.”
