SCIENCE
Our synthetic biology platform can rapidly and sustainably produce virtually any molecule that exists in nature and take it from Lab-to-Market™ with unlimited applications.

Our ingredient pipeline consists of hundreds of thousands of molecules with diverse functionality that can be leveraged in unique applications across major markets.

OUR STORY
We deliver the lowest cost, most disruptive way to produce pure ingredients from sustainable sources with No Compromise®

We use fermentation to deliver high-performing ingredients that are economical and sustainably-sourced. We were founded in 2003 with a vision to remake the world’s chemistry using synthetic biology. We genetically engineer yeast and ferment it with sustainably-sourced sugarcane to produce natural, high-performance molecules.

With a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we developed a molecule for treating malaria, called artemisinin (traditionally sourced from the sweet wormwood tree), that was used to make malaria treatments more accessible and save children’s lives. Nearly two decades later, we have continued on our mission to make people and the planet healthier, and have successfully commercialized 13 molecules. Our vision is becoming a reality, as we make what is scarce, abundant for all.

OUR STORY
OUR FOCUS
With every ingredient we bring to market, we are one step closer to transitioning the world to clean chemistry. Our sustainable ingredients are derived from responsibly produced, Bonsucro-certified sugarcane.

Our platform and Lab-to-Market proprietary operating system creates limitless opportunities. Beyond the 13 ingredients we’ve commercialized, we are actively developing our robust pipeline to explore future molecules and applications. All told, we can access over half of all small molecule diversity in nature.
