Over one million animals are slaughtered per hour in the U.S. alone for consumption. Clara Foods™ is a Silicon Valley venture-backed company making animal protein without using animals. Clara is working towards a disruptive advance in food technology by creating the world’s first animal-free egg white and other protein-based products for sports nutrition, baking, and industrial uses. By using fermentation to turn sugars into proteins, Clara designs yeast to produce the same proteins found in the foods people know and love. Clara joins a new generation of entrepreneurs and scientists who recognize that the decades-old factory farm model cannot sustain the dietary needs of 7 billion people and counting. The company brings proteins to the table that are not only produced completely animal-free, but also use less land and water inputs, while matching the taste, nutritional value, and unique culinary properties of the food products people know and love.
