In this episode of Agri Matters, we speak to Dr Pasi Vainikka, co-founder and CEO of Solar Foods, a Finnish start-up that is literally making food out of thin air. We discuss:
1) How air and electricity can come together through fermentation to replicate and replace the conventional process of growing plants
2) Taking concepts from space technology to engineer a food system solution for spaceship Earth
3) What does air protein taste like and how might it make its way to consumers?
Join us for the next episode which features Part 2 of our interview with Pasi, where we discuss their product roadmap and Pasi's favourite Finnish food! Follow us on Twitter @PinduoduoInc for more updates!
