OUR JOURNEY SO FAR

Since 2010 BioscienZ B.V. has been paving the road for The Protein Brewery by developing proprietary technologies in the field of “Producing Food without Animals “ and “Growing Crops without Chemicals“. The Protein Brewery split off from BioscienZ in 2019. The agro- and industrial biotechnology projects remained within BioscienZ, while the production of food proteins by means of fermentation are continued within The Protein Brewery. All personnel and facilities were migrated to The Protein Brewery as well as our location in Breda. BioscienZ restarted it’s contract research activities with new staff in Ghent, Belgium.
