Using the power of biology to solve the climate crisis

We produce nutritious, sustainable, and low-carbon protein for foods to meet the changing needs of our planet.

Welcome to Fermtech

My name is Andy, I’m a biologist, and the founder of Fermtech. Our passion is to use the power of biology to help solve the climate crisis.

More and more people are choosing non-animal foods because of the impact of animal farming on the environment, the climate, and the animals. We produce nutritious, sustainable, and low-carbon protein for foods to meet that need.

How does it work?

We use a natural process, using microorganisms used in fermentation since ancient times, to grow protein on grains left over from from brewing.

This produces a nutritious, non-GMO, great-tasting protein product that is perfect for use in plant-based foods, like meats, confectionery, and vegan cheese.

Our vision – by 2030

Save 1m tons of CO2 GHG equivalents.

By producing protein for >25,000 tons of animal-free products.
