About Company

A food company for optimists

We believe human ingenuity and scientific curiosity will reveal nature’s solutions to our planet’s challenges. We’re on a quest to improve our food system by unlocking the unmatched nourishing power of our planet for future generations.

Inspired by nature’s efficiency in extreme environments, everything we do at Nature’s Fynd is driven by curiosity. It’s what led us to explore the springs of Yellowstone’s ancient volcano for NASA-supported research on extreme ecosystems.

That’s how we discovered a remarkable, protein-rich microorganism.

Introducing a new-to-the-world protein. Using the microorganism, we developed a breakthrough fermentation technology to create Fy (“fai”), a highly nutritious source of animal-free protein with all 9 essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

99% less land, 87% less water than beef

Fy is produced using a tiny fraction of the land, water, and energy of traditional protein sources. Good for nourishing people and nurturing the planet.

Made into amazing-tasting, healthy foods. Due to Fy’s uniqueness and versatility, we can create many delicious, nutrition-packed foods. From breakfast to dinner, from sweet to savory, all foods you know and love.

Our mission is to create amazing foods that both nourish people and nurture the planet.

Our Story

Many thousands of years ago, in the acidic hot springs at what is today Yellowstone National Park, a remarkable microbe evolved. Fast forward to 2009 when one of our founding members, a PhD student researching extreme life at the park with support from NASA, identified and discovered this naturally occurring microorganism. A single sample was collected by researchers under permit without negatively impacting the park’s environment or hot springs.

Cultivating our microorganism using our breakthrough fermentation technology, we produce our complete protein, Fy. Due to Fy’s unique versatility, we can create many great-tasting foods that nourish people and nurture the planet.
