We are Moolec Science

Ag-Foodtech company with a global team working for more than ten years for the future of food.

We started the Molecular Farming Revolution by developing the
first hybrid concept between plant & cell-based technologies.

The purpose of what we do

Our goal is to improve the affordability of animal-free solutions in favour of true sustainability.
We work on a daily basis to help create a more sustainable, resilient, and
equitable food system.

Molecular Farming

Our platform is based on the application of biotechnology in crops for the production of proteins. This is not new: it has been used since the 90s mainly for the pharmaceutical industry.

Plants as bioreactors

Molecular Farming is a cost-effective technology consuming fewer natural resources through biology. It brings the possibility of taking animals out of the equation -targeting carbon neutrality- and bringing back farmers as key participants of our value chain.

Moolec´s Technology

Moolec´s Technology

A little bit
of history

Genetic modification of crops has been done ever since the beginning of farming. In early settlements, small farming communities understood they could re-seed the plants that had the most desirable properties. This gradually evolved into selective breeding of crops. This crop breeding is a form of opportune genetic modulation.

Food
Safety

GM-food-products are among the most tested products in history. The process must include strict evaluations on potential risks to humans, livestock, and the environment.

So, why not use biotechnology to make sustainlable food?
Moolec’s products are based on the genetic engineering of plants to include animal genetic information in order to enable them produce proteins the way animals do.

Simple. Just science.
