Why Fungi?

Flora, fauna… and funga!

Fungi have been a natural part of the human diet for millennia, but still offer much untapped potential. Today, we humans derive our protein from plants or animals. Fungi form a kingdom completely apart, being neither plants nor animals. They can offer us the best of both worlds and more!

Fungal mycoprotein matches the nutritional quality of animal protein. Fungi create completely new protein, distinguishing them from animals that simply convert plant-derived protein.

The production of mycoprotein is sustainable and ethical like that of plant proteins – and even better. Producing PEKILO® mycoprotein requires no new agricultural land, minimal water, leads to no nutrient runoff and thus has a very low environmental footprint.

More than 70%

less GHG emissions

compared to imported soy protein. Our product is sustainably produced from side streams using minimal water and land.

Tried and tested​.

Alternative protein solutions are nothing new to us. PEKILO® has been in industrial production already during 1975–1991. With a production process optimised for efficiency, applications are only limited by imagination.
