Imagine having a glass of dairy milk without needing a cow. Remilk is reimagining dairy products and how they are produced. The Israeli company recently raised $11.3 million dollars in their first investment round and speaks to the rising market for plant and animal alternatives. The team has uncovered a way to use only 5% of the resources needed, and zero animals.
With an exploding market for dairy-free milk, the appeal of Remilk is that it offers the nutritional benefits of dairy milk and cheese products, without harming animals for production. They use the process of microbial fermentation to create what they call “white gold,” offering the same flavors, textures, and nutritional values as cow products without the cow.
CEO and co-founder Aviv Wolff said that “Relying on animals to make our food is no longer sustainable. This model of food production has all but reached its limits in terms of scale, reach, and efficiency and the implications are devastating for our planet. Remilk is revolutionizing the way we produce food around the world, and importantly, is creating a lasting and environmentally-friendly food system that takes no more than what our planet can give.”
