Making Nature Accessible, Affordable and Protected for a Growing Society
It is estimated that the world’s population will increase by more than 35% by 2050, reaching 9 billion people. Crop production will need to more than double in order to feed these people and meet the consumer needs of a developing world. With very little land remaining for agricultural expansion, we as a society need to find ways to maximize the use of our world’s resources.Plants produce a variety of rare natural products which are used in our daily lives as flavors, fragrances, food ingredients, cosmetics, vitamins, pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals. We strive to reduce our dependence on land- and resource-intensive practices by recreating natural processes through biotechnology.
We recreate plant processes in microorganisms to produce natural ingredients through fermentation. Our microbial platform has been optimized to convert inexpensive carbon and plant-derived substrates into rare and expensive ingredients with applications as flavors, fragrances, food ingredients, cosmetics, vitamins, pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals. Ultimately, our technology provides a low-cost, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly source for many ingredients used in our daily lives.
Manus Bio is an interdisciplinary team drawn from around the world, dedicated to the sustainable production of quality natural ingredients. If you share our passion, please write to us describing how you would like to contribute to our team.
