Our Founders and Board
Darko started his career in the European food industry in 2012 and worked on managing and growing honey companies in more than 5 countries. By pursuing his dream to reinvent the honey industry and make it sustainable, Darko immigrated from Serbia to the United States in 2019 to launch MeliBio.
Darko is now an impact entrepreneur on a mission to sustainably feed 10B+ people with delicious and nutritious foods while saving Planet's keystone species - wild and native bees.
Darko is passionate about the future of food and ways to advance science to make the food system sustainable, scalable and animal-free.
Aaron is an avid chef, gardener, and scientist who obtained his PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley. Aaron is passionate about feeding people, and making highly delicious and nutritious food more available around the world.
He is also passionate about nature, and promoting ecological balance by preserving and understanding keystone species such as bees. Combining these passions with rigorous scientific training, Aaron is uniquely poised to make an impact on the landscape of the future of food on our planet.
As CTO of MeliBio, Aaron is developing and using novel, as well as time-tested, methods to create honey, without the bee. These methods will be unique to MeliBio, their details protectable under patent(s), and scalable as MeliBio grows to meet worldwide demand.
