Hallo. We’re Formo.

We are a double-decker bus of science love and fromage fetishism. It’s our mission to make mouth-watering cheeses and reimagine our food system.

Forged on Mount Fondue.

Fondue, Federer and Formo founder Raffa share a homeland, Switzerland.

It was there in 2012, after a lifetime full of Swiss cheese and Brazilian barbecues (he’s half Brasileiro, you see), that Raffa decided to go vegan.

Seven years on in Berlin, home of hedonism and dubious dreams, Raffa had an idea: use cheese and science to counter a world on fire. The goal? Not mimicking cheese, but recreating it, molecules upwards — coaxing microorganisms into the dairy of the future.
