Zachary Austin

Co-Founder & CEO, Pacifico Biolabs
After graduating from the University of Cambridge, Zac started his career at McKinsey in London as a consultant working across a range of industries. In 2020 he joined the British Government’s Covid Task Force as a Senior Advisor in the Cabinet Office, focusing on National Healthcare. In 2021 he moved to Berlin to join Razor Group (now a Unicorn) as Head of Special Projects, building and optimising operational teams and functions. Pacifico Biolabs was founded in 2022, with the vision to create alternative protein products as a commercially viable alternative to fish and meat. Building on many of the learnings from earlier movers in both the plant-based and fermentation space, Pacifico have developed technology to create realistic whole-muscle textures through fermentation, utilising agri-food sidestreams, with a highly-scalable process. Pacifico won a number of awards in 2023 including Givaudan’s Future of Taste Award, and EIT (European Institute of Technology) Food’s Net Zero Food System Award. After closing their $3.3M Pre-Seed Round, Pacifico are now focused on scaling their process to bring their gamechanging products to market
