Meet the low-carbon masterminds behind Mars’ latest climate innovation

Theresa Lieb writes in GreenBiz about Perfect Day, an alternative food protein startup.

The C3 Take
  • Perfect Day is a Bay-area startup that produces whey protein with microflora, instead of dairy from cows.
  • Candy company Mars is partnering with Perfect Day to bring a chocolate bar to market that is less carbon and methane-intensive than its other candy bars.
  • Consumer choice and private sector leadership are accelerating exciting innovations such as these.

“Rowe estimates that the new bar’s carbon footprint is only a third of the average Mars product, which includes iconic sweets such as M&Ms and Snickers. Achieving a two-thirds reduction in the carbon intensity of a food product in less than a year is something many sustainability leaders can only dream of putting into their CSR reports.”
