From lab to product to usage …
Together with our strategic partner Ontario Genomics, a Canadian non-profit organization, we have developed a one-of-a-kind innovation hub. A dedicated 25,000-square-foot space within our facility will provide clients, including small and mid-size cellular agriculture and other biotech companies with access to laboratory space, bioreactors and, if needed, mentorship, to test and scale up their products.
Our objective? Accelerate research and development around scalable fermented and cultivated products, including much needed foods, ingredients and other products. With a focus on scalability and sustainability, one outstanding feature of the hub will be the world’s first bioreactor with a volume of 25,000L.
Learn. Connect. Network.

The Cultivated B unlocks the full potential of biotechnology by taking it from laboratory environment to industrial commodities. We solve key challenges of scalable alternative protein production and provide our solutions as physical goods or licensable know-how. By using cellular agriculture and new approaches in bioreactor technology we drive forward the cultivated meat, food production, and personal care industries.
Ontario Genomics (OG) is a not-for-profit organization that leads the application of genomic-based solutions to drive economic growth, improved quality of life and global leadership for Ontario. OG plays a vital role in the ecosystem of Canada’s cellular agriculture community by funding startups and industry-academic partnered applied research, convening through national conferences, publishing white papers, reports and thought leadership.
PreFer industries is a division of The Cultivated B where we apply precision fermentation and natural sourcing to produce smart ingredients with high-quality formulations for various industries. Our technologies deliver a wide range of solutions which enable not only from a food standpoint but also pharma, cosmetic and personal care industries to serve their consumers’ needs.
NPC is an innovation cluster exclusively dedicated to natural solutions within Canada’s ecosystem. It is establishing Canada as a global leader in research, development and commercialization of natural products, focusing on nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals; functional foods and food ingredients; agricultural products, animal feed ingredients and veterinary care products; and green replacements for chemically derived products.
