dsm-firmenich partners with Interstellar Lab:

Partnership launches ingredient research program

dsm-firmenich has partnered with Interstellar Lab, a biotech startup that develops biofarming solutions. 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.

This collaboration aims to pioneer an ingredient research program focusing on the impact of environmental conditions on plant yield and phenotype evaluation. Leveraging Interstellar Lab's AI-controlled environment and biotech expertise, the partnership seeks to reduce the climate impact of farming & preserve biodiversity in critical ecosystems.

Interstellar Lab specializes in developing and operating advanced biofarming platforms to accelerate plant growth and trigger specific molecule production in plants. Their AI-environment-controlled biofarms optimize energy and resource consumption, capture CO2, and considerably improve the life cycle assessment of ingredients with a unique data-driven approach.

"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," says Barbara Belvisi, CEO and Founder of Interstellar Lab.

At dsm-firmenich, we valorize natural ingredients and continuously push the boundaries of innovation and sustainability for perfumery. 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," adds Michal Benmayor, VP of Perfumery Innovation and Sustainability at dsm-firmenich.

This collaboration between two pioneers in natural innovation will unlock the potential of exclusive natural ingredients to create the beautiful and sustainable scents of tomorrow.
