What does your startup do and what is your mission?
Anastasia: At Bidifice, we believe in the possibility of a world without allergies and chronic diseases. Our plan consists of combining the potential of ice cream flavors with the high efficiency of powerful probiotic bacteria. That’s how we created Bifidice – the first functional plant-based probiotic ice-cream that actively combats allergies and long-term illnesses.
Where did the idea for your company come from?
Anastasia: I grew up in my father’s laboratory, where he researched the mechanisms of how microbiota and the immune system relate to one another on a molecular level. I was really inspired by his work and studies! I wanted to bring a product based on this amazing technology to the market.
