Among celebrations for the initial Mycofood orders getting ready for shipment, the Biotech company is changing its name to reflect an ambitious broader remit
“We feel Eternal reflects better our commitment to future generations: innovation with sustainability at heart, to create better options for the world,” Aito de la Rua, Chief Purpose Officer commented.
LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#altprotein—Eternal, formerly Kernel Mycofoods, announced the name change to reflect the company’s ambition: to become a leading technology & innovation platform, where robotics, artificial intelligence and other cutting edge technologies support life science research with the objective of tackling today’s toughest issues.
Among the celebrations for its food product—Mycofood—becoming market-ready, the company mentioned additional areas of research they are working with, which include space exploration technology and sustainable construction materials.
“The only way to become 100% Karma-free is by developing new products that beat the performance of their predecessors without making the environment or clients pay a premium for it. Food is only the beginning,” Horacio Acerbo, the company CEO commented proudly.
The company recently closed a corporate investment round, which has seen their R&D value jumping beyond $42m, and the company valuation even further ahead. The capital is expected to fuel the future growth of the business.
Eternal will keep Mycofood as their ingredient name: “By calling our product an alternative protein, we are selling ourselves short: Mycofood is much more than that – it is a complete food, with amazing health and nutritional properties,” said Dr. Martin Blasco, the Company CSO.
