Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?
Atlast’s core technology is powered by mycelium, the root structure of mushrooms. As a spin-off from Ecovative, we use our foundational understanding of the mushroom kingdom to iterate on the capabilities of mycelium. We grow whole cut meats by replicating the texture and structure through our patented growth process. While we are beginning with bacon, soon to launch in 2021, our platform has proven successful in creating alternative pasta, fish, and sweets, all with our mycelium ingredient.
Which market/clients do you address and which short-/long-term goals do you have?
Our company is engaging in ingredient manufacturing for CPG as well as launching our consumer brand in retail this fall. Our Atlast platform not only promises a delicious and healthy future, but a solution to our current meat production problems. It is our mission to bring you delicious, planet-friendly foods, rooted in nature.
What makes your approach unique compared to other stakeholders in this field?
Atlast brings innovation to the food industry by cultivating a process, one that has been running our forests for millions of years. Our new agricultural technology grows mushrooms in a different geometry– mycelium in whole slabs– and is similar to indoor mushroom farming and solid-state fermentation. Our super ingredient is a whole food; it is grown, not ground, layered, or pressed together.
