Our mission

FÆRM believes that ditching dairy should not come at the expense of enjoying cheese.

That's why our mission is rooted in revolutionizing and democratizing plant-based cheese, for the sake of our business partners and end consumers.

Since 2020, we've assembled an exceptional team of experts and engineers who have managed to do just that. With our groundbreaking, patented technology and process based on the traditional craftsmanship required to produce cheese, we've managed to create plant-based cheese of the finest quality.

We've combatted the reputation of plant-based cheese and created a technology that ensures rich taste and a texture that feels like good old-fashioned cheese.

We provide our technology to companies, dairies and organizations that want to differentiate themselves by producing different, flavourful plant-based cheese.

Our culture

Inclusion, authenticity and happy employees are the cornerstones of FÆRM.

We care about people and so do our employees, which is why we've created an inclusive culture where we can inspire each other and grow together. We believe that the ideal workplace is inclusive and driven by diversity of thought and a can-do-it-mindset.

This fosters our creative science as it enables a safe environment for a trial-and-error approach. This is crucial when it comes to our ability to experiment with plant-based cheese.

This inclusivity and authenticity is not limited to our culture. Quite the contrary. It's imbued in our purpose for establishing the company.

For instance, our delicious, nutritious plant-based cheese creates better alternatives on the market and thereby we include almost 70% of the world's population who are lactose intolerant according to the National Institutes of Health (2018).

Sustainable work environment

We are firm believers in the notion that a sustainable company has a sustainable work culture.

That's why we make it our mission to create a sustainable work environment that creates job satisfaction and promotes our employees' well-being.

As part of this mission, we combat the societal stress tendency by, for instance, making sure that our employees do not work outside of working hours and by promoting limitless sick days for them as well as their children.

Furthermore, we operate on the premise that our employees work because they want to, not because they have to. This means we trust our employees and are convinced that we all work for a common purpose and goal.

With this trust, we believe they know how they work best, which is why we promote autonomy as one employee states:

"I love the autonomy we have, as I get to use my creativity and work the best way possible for me. Not only do I get to use my time more efficiently, but I actually feel like I take ownership of parts of the company and achieve better results - so it's a win-win-win" - Sanne, Research & Development Project Manager at FÆRM.
