Why You Should Listen
In this conversation, Sara and I talk about
Her background as a pre-med student and how and why she decided to get involved in the food industry.
How her early experiments replicating dairy milk forth using plants led her to better understand the gaps in functionality, taste and texture of existing products, as well as a gap in the market when it came to addressing the needs of healthy aging.
Why she thinks what she is working on is food tech 2.0 and why we need to go beyond replicating meat, dairy, and eggs and create products that are not just replacements, but also improvements.
Why the adult nutrition market is in desperate need for innovation and how Perennial is designed to offer consumers in this segment a nutritionally superior product that tastes great.
