Our culture


The reason for Solar Foods’ existence surpasses profit. Solar Foods is for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.


Solar Foods’ targets are remarkable, yet achievable. We are selling a worldview that is evidence-based and transparent.


Solar Foods is for progress. Progress comes through challenging the status quo and paving the way to where you believe the future should be.

We believe in possibilism

The facts about how the world stands with population growth, environmental breakdown, and the climate crisis – are undeniable. It is the right of ordinary people to demand better solutions, the responsibility of scientists, engineers and business to come up with them, and the obligation of decision-makers to embrace those new solutions and bring them to fruition.

Solar Foods is a revolutionary game-changer. We have created a solution for industrial scale protein production that is carbon neutral and liberates it from the shackles of agriculture, thereby changing the course of human development.

That sums up our mentality: possibilism. The world needs better answers to the burning questions around our food system. If we are determined enough, finding the solutions is possible.
