Food Preservation

BioVeritas upcycles excess biomass to provide a bio-based mold inhibitor with a clean-label name, familiar sensory, and synthetic-equivalent efficacy, all while being cost-competitive.  

Industry Problem

The vast majority of mold inhibitors on the market today are derived from petrochemicals. As consumers are driving explosive growth in clean label solutions, natural mold inhibitors have emerged, yet they lack the efficacy and familiar sensory experience of the synthetic versions.  

Use Case

Mold inhibition is key to extending the shelf life of food, providing consumers the products they love for longer, producers a wider window for sales, and the planet a relief of the effects of food waste.

Why BioVeritas


Better for consumers. Better for manufacturers. Better for the planet.


At BioVeritas, we strive to make more than just incremental improvements to what already exists. We seek not to improve the status quo, but to displace it with more sustainable solutions. Our BioVeritas Process™ represents a true functional drop-in replacement for existing technology. Our team puts people – from customers to investors to fellow employees – first, always. With this at our core, we are quickly moving forward to make clean ingredients and bio-based chemicals mainstream by eliminating the tradeoffs inherent in the clean products available today.


By turning feedstocks of little to no value into products of high value, we’re not just changing the game – we’re changing the world.


Mother Nature Inspired  

Our process is based on fermentation as originally designed by Mother Nature -- but at commercial scale. 


Truly Sustainable 

Our process uses low-value, excess biomass as a raw material to produce high-value outputs. 


No Trade-Offs

Our process creates products that help to sustain our planet, without compromising quality​ or efficacy. 


US Manufacturing Leader

Our novel manufacturing will launch in the US with plans to expand globally.


"We are creating clean ingredients and bio-based chemicals for a wide range of markets through our leading, proprietary upcycling process. The food industry is our starting point.  

Our ingredients offer the same efficacy and performance as the petrochemical-based ingredients. The same great taste that consumers already love. And we do it all focusing on the sustainability of our planet. 

We are excited to do our part in advancing humanity towards a new, more sustainable future."
