Mushroom Jerky Maker Partners With Siddhi Capital

February 3, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
When entrepreneur Matt Feldman went vegan after moving from Hawaii to San Francisco, he found he missed his favorite snack: beef jerky. Working at first with portobello mushrooms, then with King Oyster mushrooms, and with the help of an expert in food product development, he perfected a recipe for Moku, a shelf-stable, plant-based jerky “that really taste[s] like meat." To enhance the naturally-meaty mushrooms, he added umami, savory notes from chickpea miso and coconut aminos, and a little sweetness from maple syrup. To scale the business he needed a partner. Enter Melissa Facchina of Siddhi Capital, who just happened to be searching for a tasty plant-based jerky product in which to invest. Though on the market only a few months, sales have been strong. The company will remain focused on the DTC channel, and is looking forward to its upcoming Amazon Prime listing.
