Glatt and IE Grpup commissioned to plan the world’s first integrated precision and mycelium fermentation protein plant

A multi-product, industrial scale fermentation production platform for non-animal derived foods will be created for planetary SA in Switzerland.

Planetary SA has started the engineering phase of its first industrial scale bio- and food tech production hub in Switzerland. The overall engineering work is led by Dr. Joachim Schulze, CTO planetary. Planetary’s strategically located production facility is designed to be a first of its kind multi-product microbial fermentation facility, able to produce precision fermented compounds, such as proteins and lipids, as well as biomass from mycelium on a commercial scale. This is the key to lowering costs of alternative protein and generating a measurable impact on world food production.
