TurtleTree Labs is a biotechnology company pioneering the technology to produce human milk for all humans by using cells to do so with one simple but guiding purpose! It is to nourish people and protect our planet in the most sustainable way possible.
From having a "crazy hobby to make cheese", Fengru found herself embarking on a trip around Asia to source for the best milk available. However, due to hurdles such as contract farming, and hormones and antibiotics being pumped into the cows, the quality of the milk was affected.
She soon met her co-founder, Max Rye, who introduced her to biotech companies such as Memphis, and BlueNalu that leveaged on cells to create meat, and seafood. This sparked an idea in her mind which made her wonder if she could do the same for milk!
She approached scientists that validated the idea saying it is possible just that they have never executed it... There was opportunity here.
Check out Fengru's amazing journey with us!
