Company details

Michroma revolutionizes the food industry by replacing synthetic, non-vegetarian and non-sustainable colorants with a natural option using biotechnology. We are using synthetic biology to unleash the potential of filamentous fungi and develop proprietary strains capable of producing high-performance ingredients in bioreactors. Our first products are extremely pH and thermal stable food colorants that we are prototyping with some of the top food and beverage and cosmetic companies in the world.
