Moreshrooms was founded in 2023 with a mission to create a protein ingredient that is nutritious, versatile and good for the environment. 

The protein we eat today will be less available in the near future. We need to find alternatives that will do more good than damage in all aspects.

We are on a journey to make this a reality!

The name origins of Moreshrooms

Our name, “Moreshrooms,” may leave you wondering why we didn’t highlight algae in our name. The answer lies in our commitment to providing a more relatable and acceptable food source. Mushrooms, the roots of which are used to produce our mycoprotein, are a familiar and widely consumed food. We believe that by making our name more mushroom-centric, we can create a greater sense of approachability and acceptance for our mission. 

As a mycoprotein company, our goal is to offer a protein solution that is not only nutritious but also resonates with consumers, making sustainable choices easier for all.
