People want plant-based dairy. But, today, plant-based dairy is prohibitively expensive due to the use of nuts as the primary ingredient.
I created Spero Foods because I wanted everyone to be able to eat clean dairy alternatives that actually taste good.
At Spero, we make dairy from seeds.
Why seeds? Almonds/cashews (nuts), which comprise the majority of the dairy alternatives industry today, will never create cost comparable products with dairy because they are too expensive and they're hard to scale. They take too much time, space, water, and human labor. Seeds are 7-8x less expensive and grow 50-70x faster than nuts.
By using truly scalable ingredients and cutting-edge, patented technology, Spero is the first company making plant-based dairy cheaper than traditional dairy products, taking dairy alternatives mainstream.
Just this past year, Spero has been:
