About Solar Foods Ltd.

Solar Foods has created a revolutionary way to produce a natural protein with just electricity and air. An entirely new kind of food that is natural, can taste like anything, and is not reliant on land, animals, agriculture or aquaculture.


More Info on Solar Foods Ltd.

Solar Foods produces protein using air-captured carbon dioxide and electricity. Solein production, independent of weather and climate conditions, liberates global protein production from the limits of traditional agriculture. Solein can be produced in harsh environments, such as desert and arctic areas or even outer space, where traditional food production is not possible. 

Solar Foods was founded in Espoo, Finland, in 2017 by Dr Pasi Vainikka, Dr Juha-Pekka Pitkänen, Sami Holmström, Jari Tuovinen, Professor Jero Ahola, and Janne Mäkelä as a spinoff from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and LUT University.
