Melt&Marble (formerly Biopetrolia) was founded as a way to provide solutions to some of today’s sustainability problems. The company originated from Jens Nielsen’s Systems and Synthetic Biology group at Chalmers University of Technology, a group known for its in-depth knowledge and world-leading expertise in synthetic biology and metabolic engineering of microbial cell factories. The company was originally founded as a patent holding company for the research group, financed by providing yeast engineering services. In 2021, the company pivoted to focus on fats for plant-based foods.
We recognize the enormous potential of the plant-based industry to solve key challenges in climate change, sustainability, and health.
We see our technology as becoming an important enabler for the industry by providing it with the best and tastiest fats, for both consumers and the planet.
