The $8trillion global food industry is on the cusp of monumental transformation.

Driven by new disruptive technologies, this transformation will allow us to meet the needs of a growing global population and to minimise the damaging impacts of today’s food system. The following conventional industries are now being irreversibly disrupted, driving trillions of dollars in value creation:


$1.6 trillion


$790 billion


$620 billion


$120 billion


>$70 billion

New technologies are already causing transformative impact across other large global industries, from communications, to energy and transportation. The food sector is next in line to be redefined.

At Synthesis Capital, we invest in innovations across the alternative protein technology spectrum. Our four primary technology verticals are:


Conversion of crops into ingredients to biomimic animal-derived products, optimised for taste, texture and nutrition.


Ingredients and whole products manufactured by fermentation of micro-organism biomass.


Individual ingredients produced by precision fermentation or molecular farming.


Ingredients and whole products identical to their animal counterparts, produced through cell culture and tissue engineering.

We also invest in enabling technologies, which catalyse the development and scale of our four primary tech verticals, including:

Synthetic biology

Gene editing

Precision breeding

Materials science

Stem cell biology

Machine learning & Big data

3D printing

Food chemistry

Tissue engineering

Bioprocess science
