Fonterra/DSM backed startup Vivici unveils whey protein from fermentation

19 februari 2024

onterra/DSM backed startup Vivici unveils whey protein from fermentation: ‘We are already at commercially viable titers’. Vivici—a startup formed by Fonterra and DSM-Firmenich to disrupt the emerging ‘animal-free dairy’ category—says it is already in a position to supply commercial quantities of whey protein from fermentation to the US market, just over a year after it was created. The Netherlands-based startup, which has self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status in the USA, has been able to move unusually rapidly by leveraging its founders’ expertise in dairy proteins and industrial-scale biomanufacturing, CEO Stephan van Sint Fiet told AgFunderNews. “Vivici draws upon proprietary biotechnology with yeast strains which have been industrially optimized for decades.” Vivici has completed scale up activities from lab to commercial scale production with a recent successful tech transfer to 120m³ fermenter and will be working with partners in Europe and the US on commercial manufacturing, he explained. | Bronvermelding: | Redacteur: Elaine Watson
