Global Precision Fermentation Roadmap for One of the World’s Largest Investment Funds

Sector:

Situation

Our client, a world leader in precision fermentation and a large charitable foundation, asked for our help in developing a long-term forward roadmap identifying, describing and quantifying priority applications for precision-fermented proteins in food and nutrition markets and determining the most attractive potential value-chain partners

What we did

  • Researched and modelled global application markets, including size estimates, key price points
  • Identified and profiled a ‘longlist’ of potential partners and industry players
  • Interviewed 15+ relevant senior executives representing the world’s largest companies in consumer food supply and branding (general, plant-based meat and dairy); sports, infant and medical nutrition; protein ingredient suppliers and feedstock suppliers
  • Held two in-person workshops with client senior management and project team in order to ensure alignment and buy-in to project findings and implications for the business

Results delivered

At the final workshop, we worked with the client to clarify where-to-play choices regarding molecules and application markets, to be investigated further. We raised additional considerations and ‘roadblocks’ for both the client, and the wider PF industry, which need to be overcome in order to progress further towards commercialisation
