We grow microbes
“Food production requires enormous resources in form of land, fertilizer, and fuels. Reducing food waste is therefore one of the most effective ways we can limit environmental pollution, forest clearing, and climate change. ”

Limiting food spoilage
A key cause of food waste is spoilage, both in the distribution chain and at the end consumer. It is caused by microorganisms breaking down the food. The primary means of food preservation is, therefore, limiting microbial growth with cooling, packaging and chemical food preservatives. These solutions rely on a high energy consumption, as well as extensive use of plastics and synthetic chemicals.
Bioomix is working actively on discovering and developing natural, effective and safe microorganisms, that can alter the food microbiome to reduce spoilage. We hope, that our biological solutions can one day replace chemical preservatives and make our food healthier while reducing food waste.
