TCB Global

What we focus on in Canada

The Cultivated B is located in Burlington, Ontario. Our manufacturing facility hosts TCB’s subsidiaries for the production of bioreactors (The Cultivated B Canada), development of alternative proteins (PreFer Industries) as well as our Innovation Hub, in collaboration with Ontario Genomics under one roof. By combining access to lab infrastructure and production of the required technology we wish to drive forward economic development in the field of cellular agriculture:


We have invested massively into the systematic analysis of bioreactors to identify the requirements of food, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Our investigation identified both common needs and critical differences. Standardizing as much as possible but also integrating specific elements for individual needs allows us to accurately serve our customers.
