MOLT

To molt – a snake shedding their outworn skin, a bird dropping their useless feathers.

MOLT grows from the need of letting go and replacing the old. The biggest obstacle on the way to vegan adaptation, conversion into plant based diets in the western world is not the availability of plant based proteins but the lack of delicacy products, the tastes we’ve grown up with – on top of that list the taste of molded cheese.
