California based company, Wild Earth, is now producing vegan pet food. The startup hopes to revolutionise the pet food industry by making sustainable, cruelty-free, and healthy products.

In their products, Wild Earth replaces animal meat with Koji, a Japanese fungus commonly used in soy sauce. It is rich in vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin K and Molybdenum, containing all the amino acids that cats and dogs need.

Wild Earth sources lab-grown Koji. The koji is sprinkled on rice or sugar, which it quickly consumes as it grows. Koji takes about 40 to 50 hours to grow, therefore it is more efficient than growing animal meat.

After the koji is grown, it can be used as any other kind of ingredient to be made into kibble of all flavours and sizes.
