“Following the close of $120 million in Series B funding, Remilk, the food-tech innovator reimagining dairy, announced it will build the world’s largest full-scale precision fermentation facility on more than 750,000 square feet of newly acquired land within The Symbiosis project, a pioneering sustainable industrial ecosystem, in Kalundborg, Denmark.
This next major milestone demonstrates Remilk’s continued leadership in the rapidly developing category by offering consumers animal-free dairy products identical to their traditional counterparts but free of lactose, cholesterol, and hormones, thus severing the dairy supply chain’s reliance on animals.

50.000 Cows/year to be superseded
Kalundborg’s Symbiosis project is a pioneering industrial ecosystem with transformational economic and environmental results. Within the network, byproducts of one company become resources for another.
At present, Symbiosis is a collaborative effort involving more than a dozen visionary public and private companies including industry giants such as Novozymes, Novo Nordisk and Chr. Hansen.
At the new facility, Remilk will produce non-animal dairy protein for use in products like cheese, yogurt, and ice cream, in volumes equivalent to that produced by 50,000 cows each year. (…)
Denmark is a world leader in its sustainability efforts and achievements. When considering total power consumption, about 80% of the energy mix in the grid comes from green power sources including wind, solar and hydro according to Energinet.
Denmark has stated an ambitious goal to transition its entire electricity system to be independent of fossil fuels by 2027, as set by the Danish parliament. (…)
Remilk is a global leader in the development of animal-free dairy. The company was founded by Aviv Wolff, an entrepreneur behind several business and social initiatives, and Ori Cohavi, PhD in Biochemistry, who has worked in R&D at a variety of biotech firms.”
