Arturo grew up on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border. Food, particularly animal protein, was a big part of his culture.
After working for the USDA overseeing slaughterhouses in 2010 and witnessing how food gets to the plate and the environmental destruction it causes, he tried to go vegan.
In 2013, Arturo studied food security in Geneva, learning the global impact animal agriculture has on our food system. In 2014, he booked a one-way ticket to San Francisco to tackle the problem first-hand.
Once in San Francisco, Arturo met co-founders David Anchel and Isha Datar through the New Harvest research community, and Clara Foods was born in November 2014.
Clara Foods set about accelerating new breakthroughs in the development and delivery of ethical and sustainable proteins.
The next 7 years were spent deep in R&D, building an expert team and perfecting our precision fermentation technology platform and proteins.
In 2021, we launched the world’s first nature-identical animal-free pepsin.
Clara Foods rebranded to The EVERY Company in 2021 to better convey our vision of bringing animal-free proteins to everyone, everywhere. We are on a mission to accelerate the world’s transition to animal-free protein, by decoupling proteins from the animals that make them.
We launched our first animal-free egg protein product, EVERY ClearEgg, in 2021.
