Standing Ovation joins Precision Fermentation Alliance and Food Fermentation Europe
Standing Ovation, a key player in the food transition, specialized in the production of non-animal caseins by precision fermentation, has joined the Precision Fermentation Alliance (PFA) and the Food Fermentation Europe (FFE), two trade organizations representing precision fermentation players in the food industry in the USA, Europe and Israel. These two organizations aim to act as the industry's spokespersons to government bodies, industry and other economic players, as well as consumers, to promote the use of precision fermentation for a resilient and sustainable food system.
Standing Ovation aims to support the food transition by developing non-animal, lactose-free substitutes for cheese and dairy products, using proteins produced by microbial fermentation. The company has developed an innovative process to produce non-animal caseins by precision fermentation. Caseins are the main proteins in milk, and their production by fermentation is a major challenge in the field of alternative proteins. Indeed, fermentative caseins, identical to their animal analogues, are paving the way to creating true replicas of dairy products, while providing the same taste and nutritional benefits. By bringing its process to industrial scale, the Paris-based start-up is positioning itself as a key player in the field of precision fermentation.
"We are at the beginning of a new and exciting era," said Sébastien Louvion, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Standing Ovation. "Technologies for new, more planet-friendly protein resources are emerging. Next step is to make them known to consumers, and for most of these new alternative proteins, to bring them to market. Together with the members of FFE and PFA, Standing Ovation is willing to be among the very first champions to get the approval from two of the world's most respected health authorities, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)."
