Wolff and Cohavi met with diplomats and thought leaders to discuss tangible and practical next steps to accelerate the use of food-tech to safeguard the future of food.
"Remilk is committed to reinventing the dairy industry in a kind, sustainable way. Eliminating the need for animals in our food system is the only way to supply our world's growing demand without destroying it in the process," said Ori Cohavi, CTO and cofounder.
Remilk, which recently announced a commercial agreement with Central Bottling Company (CBC Group) to sell consumer products is building the world's largest full-scale precision fermentation facility within The Symbiosis project, a pioneering sustainable industrial ecosystem, in Kalundborg, Denmark.
Remilk is a global leader in the development of animal-free dairy.

They founded Remilk driven by a shared dedication to improving life on earth by learning from nature, while preserving it. Remilk produces identical milk proteins through precision fermentation and has developed a unique and patented approach to scalable manufacturing which requires a fraction of the Earth's resources compared to traditional dairy, while dramatically increasing efficiency in production, and, for the first time in history, eliminates the need for dairy cows in industrial-scale dairy production without compromising on taste, functionality, or nutritional values. Remilk is real dairy, no cows.
