Founded in 2014 by bioengineers Ryan Pandya and Perumal Gandhi, Perfect Day is on a mission to create a kinder, greener tomorrow through the thoughtful use of biology. Through three business units across B2B ingredients, consumer brands, and enterprise biology, they are working with partners around the world to recreate foods and goods they love in a way that systemically builds a climate-positive future. The company’s flagship product, the world’s first precision fermentation nature-identical milk protein, debuted in 2020. Instead of relying on cows, Perfect Day works with microflora to create proprietary animal-free cow whey protein. While delivering the same taste and texture as conventional cow whey protein, an ISO compliant, third-party reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) found that Perfect Day’s whey protein reduces blue water consumption by up to 99%, greenhouse gas emissions by up to 97%, and non-renewable energy use by up to 60%, compared to conventional production methods.
