Complete solutions for commercial production of ingredients with precision fermentation

Precision fermentation is creating new ways to produce vital ingredients the world needs to nourish a growing population. For innovators in this space, turning that potential into a reality is going to require proven, efficient and cost-effective solutions for commercial production at a large scale. For that to be possible, you need to have the right partners at your side. 

At Tetra Pak, we can work with you at every step of the way: from adapting your process for upscaling, to successfully launching your products and growing your business in the future. We know that nobody knows your process and your strain better than your team. We therefore build our collaboration to best understand your unique requirements and assess your processing needs. With expertise from 70 years of food production experience, we not only help you identify the optimal solutions for your challenges – we give you an integrated edge to manage all strategic issues from end to end.

Upstream processing

Upstream processing includes all the equipment before the bioreactor. These processes are all about creating the optimal environment in which your strain can grow – while preventing contamination from unwanted and competing organisms. Aseptic handling and sterilization, which are traditionally downstream concerns in other types of food and beverage processes, are therefore critical in the design of upstream solutions for precision fermentation.

 

We have decades of experience developing highly hygienic solutions for aseptic processing of food and beverages. Based on the needs of your strain, we can work with you to find the right solutions for flexible, reliable and cost-effective performance in your upstream processes.

Bioreactors

A number of variables go into choosing the right bioreactor. Creating the optimal conditions for the strain is of course the main priority, but there are also a number of important practical considerations: from scalability of the technology, to useability for your operators, to CAPEX as well as OPEX.

 

Whether you are preparing for pilot testing or designing a full-scale commercial plant, we can support you in finding the optimal bioreactor solution to match your needs. Our fermentation experts can work with your team to better understand your processes, and thereby help you explore the range of equipment available to you.

Downstream processing

Downstream processing includes all the equipment after the bioreactor. In precision fermentation, a number of factors influence the design of a downstream processing solution and the type of technologies required. This includes the nature of the microorganism strain and the target ingredient as well as the final product. 

 

With knowledge from decades of experience in food and beverage processing, we can work with you to understand your downstream processing challenges and identify the right solutions for addressing them. Our portfolio of equipment includes everything needed for engineering efficient, reliable and safe downstream lines for precision fermentation production.
