Novel foods technologies

We emphasize on the development of the main components and provide innovative process solutions for the production of clean, safe alternative protein products without requiring antibiotic use.

Our focus is in line with the EU’s climate ambition to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and to become climate neutral by 2050. Increasing demand for animal-sourced foods stimulates the intensification and industrialization of animal production, which increase the release of greenhouse gases, land use, and water consumption. Hence, the alternative protein industry provides better food security without significantly impacting climate change.

By advancing the industry for alternative proteins, we can also reduce the risk of zoonotic disease transmission and pandemics. Moreover, they do not require antibiotics for their production and therefore will not contribute to the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms. Creating new production technologies and developing alternative sources of protein are critically important for public health and creating sustainable, healthy diets for everyone.

Together with other partners we established spin-off Tech4Meat.


COBIK is aimed to address the most pressing health challenges of the 21st century: antibiotic resistance and emerging viral diseases. Our pipeline is focused on bacteriophage-based solutions and viral vaccines.



COBIK provides development of challenging bioprocess workflows, non-GMP manufacturing capabilities and complete project management expertise.



COBIK is a reliable partner to biopharma industry, academia and innovation ecosystem. Our drive for excellence is exemplified in track record of industrial services, patents, scientific publications and collaborations.



We are determined to give back to our local community. Through public outreach events COBIK promotes science to school children and sparks curiosity in people of all ages.
