Yumame Foods creates delicious, nutritious and local products through the innovative application of fungi, plant-based ingredients and fermentation through the application of culinary science. Our minimally-processed, local products offer a sustainable alternative to existing plant-based meat substitutes, which often involve complex processing and long international supply chains. In collaboration with our culinary chefs and scientists at the EHL Hospitality Business School, our aim is to enhance and extend our product portfolio, enable process scale-up and to validate the product/market fit with consumers.


The target of the project it to optimize Yumame Foods’ product recipes and production method so that the products can be produced at first-level industrial scale at high sensory and nutritional properties, long shelf life and market-viable costs.
The planned project steps are to:
1. Optimize process parameters and extend product recipe portfolio
2. Validate consumer preference, and assess product quality, nutritional value, and shelf-life stability
3. Transfer knowledge from pilot-scale production to first-level industrial scale production.
