So, we have heard all about meat being grown in a lab, Which is all very well, but, if we were to have less cows where do we get our milk, cream and cheese from?
A Silicon Valley food start-up “Perfect Day” may have the answer
This is what they have to say -
What started in 2014 with two guys, a big idea, and a shared passion for cheese, has quickly grown into a company on a mission to create a world of delicious animal-free dairy products. We thought: Why give up our favorite foods? There must be a better way. And so we brought together a diverse team of chefs, food designers, nutritionists, scientists, engineers, and one office dog, Sophie.
Our mission is to empower people to enjoy the dairy products they love, while leaving a kinder footprint on the planet. In order to deliver on that mission and drive the greatest impact, we realized we would be most effective partnering with food and dairy companies to bring a whole variety of new animal-free dairy products to market, not just one single product.
How do we do it? With natural resources and human ingenuity. Instead of having cows do all the work, we’ve developed a process similar to craft brewing. Using yeast and age-old fermentation techniques, we make the very same dairy proteins that cows make.
Sourced from the USDA, we cultivate our yeast to produce dairy proteins with the help of science.
Like cows, our yeast needs to graze to produce dairy proteins – and we use sugar from renewable sources.
This age-old process converts the sugar into real dairy proteins.
Perfect Day’s dairy proteins provide the same exceptional nutritional and culinary benefits of dairy protein for use in foods we love.
Perfect Day dairy proteins are vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, and lactose free and provide the same high-quality nutritional benefits as dairy proteins – while ensuring the same delicious taste, texture and functionality when used in dairy foods and products. This allows food manufacturers to create entirely new products or build on existing ones to address how we eat today and for years to come.
Perfect Day animal-free dairy proteins are the same nutritious proteins (casein and whey) found in cow’s milk, but made without a single cow. Our dairy proteins are the perfect base for dairy foods, ensuring the same delicious taste and texture.
“We can’t help it. We love cheese.”

The name Perfect Day was inspired by a Lou Reed song. Two scientists discovered that calm, happy cows produce the most milk. And cows are happier when they listen to music! One of the songs that made cows produce the most milk was the song ‘Perfect Day’ by Lou Reed. (Who knew cows were so cool?) As a company on a mission to make cows, people, and the planet happier, it seemed like a perfect fit.
