Event description

Alternative protein companies face significant challenges in securing fermentation manufacturing capacity as they scale their technologies to reach commercial reality.  Building the manufacturing capacity to bring a novel fermentation-based product to market is the largest hurdle for promising alternate protein companies.   Seasoned industry consultant Mark Warner will provide an introduction to the current state of the industry in contract fermentation and outline the process for facility identification, qualification and contracting.  The ~35 minute presentation will be followed by ~20 minutes of audience Q&A, which will be facilitated through the Zoom Q&A feature.

Topics include:

  • Current size and capability of the industrial biotechnology contract fermentation market.
  • What are CMOs, CROs, and pilot facilities, and how are they different?
  • Comparison of various contract fermentation options.
  • Case study: Real-world examples of common contract fermentation screening processes.
  • Audience Q&A.
