• About Mycorena

    At Mycorena, we create products that will have a major impact in the global sustainability challenges. We developed a proprietary process based on fungi biotechnology, to create vegan protein for food products in the most resource-efficient and sustainable way. We aim for this to be the first of many innovations that can contribute to a better world, while doing what we do best.

    We are located in Gothenburg, Sweden, and have been operating our business since 2018. In 2019, we have scaled from the lab to our first pre-industrial pilot facility and established partnerships with several global companies as testing and paying customers. In our team we are now more than 25 employees, and constantly growing!

  • Where are we heading?

    We envision being the world’s leading brand for fungi-based products made possible through biotechnology. The food sector is where we found real challenges we could solve, so in that sense, we have built a vision around a world where we have enabled more climate-friendly and environmentally sustainable eating habits.

    Our team of professional engineers and business people are on a mission to create a sustainable and healthy protein alternative to current protein products.



    "Finding next-generation food ingredients that are healthy, climate-friendly and resource-efficient is a necessity to achieve lasting positive change in our food system. Our vision is to build Mycorena into a global leader at the forefront of this change."
