2.5 million euros for Perfeggt

A plant-based alternative to eggs is the startup's vision. The foodtech is getting financial backing from investors Beyond Meat, Gorillas and Good Catch.

Perfeggt has closed its first funding round of €2.5 million. Investors include EVIG Group, Stray Dog Capital and Shio Capital. The investors already supported successful start-ups, such as Beyond Meat, Gorillas and Good Catch with capital. Business angels Godo Röben, Frank Kühne, Fredrik Jung Aboou and Ludwig Cramer-Klett also participated in the financing round.

The start-up has developed a liquid egg substitute based on vegetable proteins. Perfeggt plans to use the money to hire additional employees and further develop the alternative. "We know that taste is the most important thing for consumers. That's why we're working hard to combine the right plant-based proteins and fats to recreate the exceedingly complex multifunctional properties of ice cream as well as its special flavor," says co-founder Bernd Becker. The start-up also plans to enter the market in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2022.

Tanja Bogumil and Evig CEO Gary Lin founded Perfeggt this year together with Bernd Becker, the former head of research and development at Rügenwalder Mühle.
