We’re making plant-based food more nutritious, sustainable, and affordable.
From lab partners to business partners
But always scientists at heart. Our co-founders bonded over a shared passion for solving global environmental and health issues.
Producing food from animals is inefficient,
so we cut out the middle hen.
If you only think of animals as food on your plate, then they’re just processing machines. The input is water and plant matter, and the output is a more energy dense food — meat.
The problem is, animals need a lot of resources to keep on operating, because they don’t just exist to churn out steaks. They also burn energy running, playing, and living. At the end of the day, only a tiny fraction of the plant energy they ate gets turned into biomass (ie, meat).
This is why large-scale animal agriculture — for instance, a concentrated feeding operation — puts a huge strain on our land, water, and energy resources.
But go back to that initial input — plants and water. Why not go straight to the source and create the meat ourselves, instead of using an animal?
There are over 20,000 known edible species of plants. At Sundial, we’ve found a mix that creates the texture, taste, and macros of animal meat — without any additives, preservatives, or animals.
…is the reason we do what we do. We hope to produce the kinds of meats that people know, love, and need, without using animals.
..for the planet, but also for you. Our products are clean-label and protein-rich because we believe that nutritional benefit should be a central pillar of all food innovation.
…and the excitement that comes with it. We’re here to break boundaries and create better (for you and for the planet).
…above all. At the end of the day, we’re just here to make some really delicious food.
