In her quest to find top-quality milk for her cheesemaking passion, co-founder Fengru discovered distressing farming conditions and the excessive use of hormones and antibiotics in cows. This led her to believe that there must be a healthier and more sustainable approach to milk production.
After ideating with entrepreneur Max, the two like-minded partners embarked on a mission to pioneer a sustainable and scalable approach to crafting the world's first milk using state-of-the-art cell-based technology.
Our world-renowned science and technology experts are now at the forefront of innovation. They harness precision fermentation and cell-based technology to create high-value ingredients while employing sustainable and scalable production methods.
With a continued commitment to our long-term vision of creating cell-based milk, TurtleTree has narrowed its focus to producing the first animal-free and sustainable lactoferrin, LF+, one of milk’s most valuable ingredients. Lactoferrin is renowned for its remarkable functional benefits.
Our sights go well beyond lactoferrin and cell-based milk. Our mission is to help nourish people and the planet with sustainable products and ingredients that fuel healthy food and beverage options for all.
