Lead Partner

GEA has solutions for many alternative protein processes, but we will focus on our precision fermentation process lines at this event.

We help start-ups, ingredient suppliers and food processors to develop, scale-up and produce the nutritious new foods consumers look for. Our extensive knowledge from food and beverage, brewery and biopharma systems makes us the leader in precision fermentation. GEA test centers let you test processes, machines, ingredients and recipes with support from our expert engineers, food scientists and technicians. These sessions and machine trainings are available on-site or remotely and are key to getting high-quality goods to market quicker.

Scientific Bioprocessing
Innovation Partner

At SBI, we take the guesswork out of bioprocessing.

There are still too many black boxes and unknowns in bioprocessing. We help researchers and process engineers make the right decisions by providing them access to critical process and product data.

SBI’s goal is to become the one-stop-shop provider for almost any monitoring and bioprocess control modality. We pioneer digitally simplified bioprocessing by providing actionable insights from the lab to the production floor by monitoring and controlling critical process parameters and product quality attributes online and in real time.
