On a mission to bring more of the benefits
of breast milk to more babies.
Functional breast milk-inspired ingredients
for early life nutrition.
We are working to leverage our patented mammary biotechnology to make functional human milk components outside the body.
By utilizing the unique potential of human mammary cells and cell culture technology we hope to nourish healthier babies and bring more of the functional benefits of breast milk to early-life nutrition products.
Our vision of the future is one where we can provide a nutritionally complete product that fully supports a baby's growth and development.
Why do we need human milk components made outside the body?
Breast milk is among the most incredible substances known to nature – a dynamic blend of nutritional and functional components that can turn a newborn infant into a thriving child.
But getting enough of it into our babies is a challenge that catches many of us off guard.
Reasons as to why a parent cannot or chooses not to breastfeed could go on and on, ranging from issues with milk supply and unsupportive work policies all the way to breast cancer survivors and adoptive parents.

Most parents switch to infant formula before the recommended period of exclusively breastfeeding. We know infant formula is safe and effective for supporting our babies' growth, but it is fundamentally limited in its ability to replicate the developmental benefits of human milk.
It is critical that these products incorporate the most cutting-edge human milk research and enable breakthrough technologies that can bring more of the benefits of breast milk to more babies.
