Israel Innovation Authority to Establish New Precision Fermentation Infrastructure

The Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) has announced a RFP (request for proposal) with the aim of establishing new infrastructure for precision fermentation. Specifically, the organisation is looking to construct facilities that use fermentation to produce alternative proteins. This is part of a national operational plan by the IIA to “maintain and expand the strength of its developmental ecosystem in the field of alternative proteins”. Israel’s food tech industry is an R&D priority The hope is that improved fermentation infrastructure could allow for increased production volumes, along with technical-economic viability experiments that are not currently possible in Israel. With the production of larger batches, companies will be able to conduct R&D and carry out consumer testing. Eventually, this could pave the way for the establishment of … Continue reading Israel Innovation Authority to Establish New Precision Fermentation Infrastructure
