Onego Bio Ltd is a game-changing biotech company producing animal-free egg proteins with precision fermentation. The team believes the chosen technology is superior because of its efficiency and productivity. Based on the anticipatory LCA published in Nature Food, the technology shows potential to significantly reduce most agriculture-associated impacts, such as global warming and land use.

Egg is one of the world’s most used animal proteins and difficult to replace with alternative ingredients. Onego Bio provides the nutritional and functional upsides of egg white, without the environmental, ethical and safety-related concerns.

Founded in 2022 by Maija Itkonen (CEO), Christopher Landowski (CTO) and Jussi Joensuu (COO), Onego Bio is a VTT spin-off that salutes the remarkable work done by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland for the next level cell ag products and applications.
