Perfect Day

Perfect Day is a global leader in the research, development and production of flora-based, animal-free dairy.

Perfect Day’s business growth—including expanding its production capacity, going deeper with partner opportunities and extending its product portfolio—to further its commitment to bringing consumers the dairy products they know and love, completely animal-free.

Perfect Day was founded in 2014 by Ryan Pandya and Perumal Gandhi. The company is based in Emeryville, California.

Perfect Day is on a mission to revolutionize how dairy products are made to create a kinder, greener world. 

Perfect Day utilizes fermentation in microflora to create proprietary ‘flora-made’ dairy protein. Perfect Day’s ingenious animal-free protein can be used across a range of products — from ice cream and milk to cheese and butter to deliver the same taste and texture of dairy with none of the environmental, animal welfare or food safety concerns.


Perfect Day also plans to build a turnkey network of localized animal-free dairy protein producers and processors to avoid unnecessary supply chain bottlenecks.


Perfect Day is backed by Temasek, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments), Horizons Ventures, ADM Capital and others. The company extended it Series to $300M on July 08, 2020. This follows an initial $140 million C round shared late last year. The additional financing brings Perfect Day's total funding to $347.7M to date.
