DSM-Firmenich partners with startup to develop natural ingredients

DSM-Firmenich is partnering with American-French biofarming startup Interstellar Lab to develop exclusive natural ingredients.

Interstellar Lab specializes in developing and operating advanced biofarming platforms to accelerate plant growth and trigger specific molecule production in plants.

Its AI-environment controlled biofarms optimize energy and resources consumption, capture CO2, and considerably improve the life cycle assessment of ingredients with a unique data-driven approach.

The collaboration aims to pioneer an ingredient research programme focusing on the impact of environmental conditions on plant yield and phenotype evaluation.

“Together, the two companies aim to spearhead advancements in botanical ingredients production, marking a significant leap forward in DSM-Firmenich’s quest to expand and explore the boundaries of natural innovation in agrotech, and to unlock new dimensions in olfactive richness and sustainable innovation,” DSM-Firmenich said.

This collaboration will unlock the potential of exclusive natural ingredients to create the beautiful and sustainable scents of tomorrow, it added.

“Our biofarming platform represents a revolution in the perfumery landscape, understanding and addressing the current industry needs to provide renewable ingredients, responsibly sourced and produced, that inspire creators and respect the environment” said Interstellar Lab CEO Barbara Belvisi (pictured, right).

DSM-Firmenich perfumery innovation and sustainability vice-president Michal Benmayor (pictured, left) added: “Our partnership with Interstellar Lab represents another avenue of exploration in agrotech, expanding our ability to harness the synergy of nature and science, breaking the conventions to uncover unparalleled excellence in both olfactive quality and sustainability for our creations.”
