About the company:

Nobell Foods is creating cheese and other dairy products from plant-derived dairy proteins for the 99% of people who are unwilling to compromise on taste and price. 

Worldwide dairy production accounts for 40% of global livestock emissions. In the US, the dairy industry is responsible for 2% of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions. And a growing chunk of that dairy consumption is coming from cheese.

Alpine Bio is a plant genetics company transforming plants into the world's most regenerative protein factories. With a fully developed end-to-end bio-manufacturing platform Alpine Bio is poised to usher in a new age of hyper efficient protein production. Our first proof of concept protein, Casein, is a -complex and unstructured dairy protein that gives cheese its stretch, melt, and much of its protein nutrients. We are beginning public tastings of our animal-free mozzarella via our brand Nobell Foods in 2025 and are quickly expanding into other high value proteins.
