Whilst on a mission to create real milk without the mammal, one thing kept coming up for Turtletree cofounder Max Rye: the rising importance of human milk, both from an infant formula and overall human health perspective. Pioneering a method of cellular agriculture which can utilise cell-lines to make milk from cow and human alike, Singapore-based startup Turtletree are bringing something new and novel to the industry. In this week’s episode we talk more with Max on their unique technological approach, as well as regulatory processes and what these mean for product timeline and branding. We also discuss the launch of Turtletree Scientific, a recently-launched branch of the company which focusses on creating growth factors and media which can lower the cost of cell-based products, advancing the path to commercialisation.
