We biodesign the
next generation of natural ingredients.

Our Mission

TO ENABLE COMPANIES TO MANUFACTURE UNIQUE PRODUCTS FOR HUMANITY BY CREATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF NATURAL INGREDIENTS

When it comes to promoting health and sustainability, the products that we consume hold so much more potential. Sophisticated formulation isn't the problem, but rather the quality of everyday ingredients.

That’s why we are leading the transition to a new era of ingredients, moving past petrochemical-derived synthesis, plant extraction, and the use of animals. Leveraging the power of science and technology, we are creating a future of abundance and naturality.

"We leverage the power of biotech to build a more colorful future"

Our Story

We believe in the creative capacity of science.

In 2019, fates united when Dr. Mauricio Braia, an expert in industrial biotechnology, met Ricky Cassini, an entrepreneur and business consultant.

Inspired to reimagine the health and sustainability potential of our food system, they began a shared journey focused on discovering how to transform what we consume for the better.

Michroma sees that vision become an exciting new reality.
