Our mission is to accelerate alternative protein research and support our partners in launching new products and services based on the novel approach of food synthetic biology.

TFTAK has state-of-the-art laboratory and highly qualified personnel. The center deals with R&D projects of biotechnology as well as food technology. These are very closely related in TFTAK via the use of ‘omics’ methods and in-depth knowledge and understanding of molecules and their behavior. We use modern analytical methods and our pilot plant to find the best possible results.
