The next generation of sustainable ingredients isn’t going to develop itself…

…so that’s where we come in.

To improve the sustainability of the food industry, we are on a mission to find functional ingredients that can replace animal-derived products. With Flourish™, we interrogate our database of nearly 450 million proteins found in nature to identify ingredients that will solve specific functional ingredient challenges.

So many proteins, so little time.

The Flourish™ platform uses unconventional methods that lead to surprising ingredient discoveries.

We use conventional and unconventional methods to discover the next generation of sustainable ingredients.

By mining our proprietary database using machine learning and bioinformatics, we find the best protein ingredients for the food industry. The beauty of this is that Flourish™  is constantly getting smarter and functionally richer.

We sweat the science, so that the entire planet can reap the benefits.

Using precision fermentation, Shiru’s scientists create proteins that are exact molecular replicas of plant proteins that meet, or even exceed, the functional and nutritional attributes of those found in animals.
