For the last 100 years, our reliance on synthetic ingredients has permeated virtually every aspect of our lives, from the most intimate corners of our homes to the vast expanses of the oceans, the need for a radical change is more evident than ever before.
These synthetic ingredients, many of them obtained from oil, have infiltrated our daily existence in ways that often go unnoticed – present in single - use plastics clogging our landfills, in the personal care products we apply to our skin, and in the production of food we consume day in and day out.
However, on the horizon emerges a promising solution that challenges this deeply ingrained paradigm. One day we asked ourselves: If we want to produce ingredients for our lives, why don't we get inspired by life?
It was then that we turned to the first forms of life on our planet: microorganisms.
Through the innovative convergence of fermentation, artificial intelligence, and our ‘directed evolution’ of microorganisms, we are forging a new platform that holds the promise to free us from the dependence on synthetic ingredients and pave the way for a future where nature and technology collaborate harmoniously to nurture and sustain our world in sustainable and unexplored ways.
Unsustainable, harmful and unethical, we have arrived to end the tyranny of synthetic ingredients in our lives.
A disruptive platform
that obtains new natural
ingredients through FERMENTATION,
Aquaculture and feed
that Darwin would
be proud of
Our cutting-edge technology is like nature's evolution on fast-forward. We call it 'Directed Evolution' and it's a game-changer for ingredient development.
Do you know how nature takes its sweet time to evolve creatures? Well, we've put that process into high gear.
We bring our microorganisms into our lab and mimic millions of years of natural evolution in just a few months.
4 million years
With our 'Directed Evolution' technology, we're like the conductors of a science orchestra. We tweak and nudge these microorganisms to evolve in a way that serves humanity best. Imagine compressing all that evolution into a short period. Each generation is more efficient in producing our ingredients than the previous one.
The result? Microorganisms that are superstars of evolution. This shows how science and nature can high-five each other, creating ingredients that not only keep up with synthetic stuff but also do it more efficiently and eco-friendly.
We do not doubt that Darwin would have been blown away by our technology!
