Screening of proprietary enzymes libraries for desired activities and proof-of-concept level testing of designed pathways.
Construction of cell-factories to produce ingredients from renewable raw material using engineering biology tools and techniques
Precise brewing process for producing ingredients at large-scale.
Efficient and food grade purification of ingredients and quality assurance.
Natural ingredients from lab to market, efficiently and ethically.
All ingredients produced from renewable, natural substrates such as sugars.
Production is independent of agriculture yields.
