Building food with biology

Company Details

Many of the foods we love, the medicines we need, and the cosmetics we use daily rely on a single ingredient – gelatin. For thousands of years, humans have scavenged animal scraps to obtain gelatin. Scavenging essential products from animals presents urgent economic problems, environmental problems, public health problems, and for many, moral problems.

At Geltor, we make real gelatin, without the animal.
Recombinant proteins are critical to the post-animal economy. This precious material is also notoriously difficult and expensive to manufacture. However, at Geltor, we developed a recombinant protein production platform to build essential proteins at a low cost.
