Soylent’s mission is to use cutting-edge science and engineering to create nutritious food that is convenient and affordable to everyone in the world. We hope that Soylent will one day be a staple in every home — as ubiquitous as milk and flour.
When people today want food that is convenient and affordable they often resort to fast food or sugary snacks. We believe future generations won’t have to trade off between nutrition, convenience, and affordability. They’ll view fast food and sugary snacks as relics of the past — the same way many of us view smoking and other bygone unhealthy habits.
Today, Soylent is taking an important step in that direction with the announcement of Soylent 2.0, a new formula that provides 20% of recommended daily nutrients in a convenient, ready-t0-drink bottle.
Soylent 2.0 is the culmination of years of work, including the invention of environmentally friendly technologies that produce inexpensive, nutritious ingredients.
Typical food companies spend very little on R&D, and lots on advertising and distribution. Soylent spends almost nothing on advertising and distribution, and lots on R&D. We expect that, over time, these investments in R&D will lead to increasingly high quality products, sold at ever lower prices.
You can pre-order Soylent 2.0 today — shipments begin October 15.
