We are food-tech company. We developed proprietary protein texturing technology that enables us to produce plant-based whole cuts. Our vision is to produce a variety of meat products and match animal derived counterparts by taste, price and convenience. We want to accelerate transition of meat industry into a more sustainable future - by 2030 we want to cut meat consumption in half.
Biotechnologist by education, but I specialize in protein processing and texture development for plant-based products. I have a great passion for crafting delicious, innovative foods - I see food as a scientific experiment that can be eaten. Before co-founding Juicy marbles I was working on a variety of hardware projects, from precision farming robots, to inexpensive lab equipment - that experience became quite handy, when we were developing a machine for texturing protein into steaks.
Tilen is an experienced digital transformation entrepreneur turned food-tech geek. Together with his two co-founders, they launched BEVO - a plant protein texturisation company that developed a process and designed a machine capable of turning any plant protein in a delicious whole-cut steak. Tilen is also an avid supporter of Slovenia's startup ecosystem and holds an MBA.
