Perfect Day Deepens Investment in Enterprise Biology Business with New Brand Identity, nth Bio, and Announces Partnership with Onego Bio
Company unveils enterprise biology partnership with Onego Bio, to accelerate scaling of animal-free egg white protein production
nth has been working largely behind-the-scenes for the past two years to deliver scale-up production, IP licensing, strain engineering services, and other solutions to a diverse range of precision fermentation, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences customers. nth is the only enterprise biology company in the world that offers end-to-end expertise and services from the earliest stages of molecular development to commercial-scale manufacturing, and the many steps in-between.
In addition to debuting the nth Bio brand, the company is excited to be able to publicly share its work with partner Onego Bio as a hallmark example of what it stands to achieve through this work. Onego Bio aims to use a breakthrough technology to commercialize animal-free ovalbumin, the most abundant egg white protein, with precision fermentation. Global egg production has almost doubled its volume during the past 20 years and is forecasted to reach 138 million tons by 2030. The Onego Bio team stands to meet that demand in a way that preserves the future of our planet. nth has accelerated the timeline for turning this vision into a reality by offering its strain engineering, bioprocess development, regulatory support, and scale up process services.
“The name nth Bio comes from the exponential impact we stand to have by bringing others along on our journey. It’s our commitment to creating a kinder, greener tomorrow through collaboration — taken to the nth degree. We look forward to continuing this work from our Salt Lake City base, supporting innovative, mission-aligned companies with nth and extending our impact into new industries,” said Ryan Pandya, Perfect Day co-founder and CEO. “Onego Bio is a serious, new player in the field, with top-notch technology skills and world class experts that share our kinder, greener mission. We believe their animal-free egg white products will play a significant role in transforming our food chain,” he added.
Onego Bio is a spin-off from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland that has been developing and researching precision fermentation technology for the past several years. The technology is based on the same efficient microflora platform that is used by Perfect Day to produce animal-free milk proteins. Onego Bio aims to launch its first product Bioalbumen™ in the U.S. as a food ingredient for the bakery and confectionary industry—as well as a protein supplement for fitness products—and later enter the consumer market with its own branded products for baking and cooking.
“We are thrilled to announce the partnership with nth Bio. Perfect Day has been an enormous trailblazer in the global animal-free protein business, gaining GRAS status in the United States, and successfully communicating the no-compromise impact potential that its technology empowers to a larger audience. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Perfect Day to follow in their footsteps with our own Onego Bio products,” said Maija Itkonen, CEO of Onego Bio.
This global partnership and the work of nth underscore Perfect Day’s deep commitment to impact through collaboration. As the first company to bring nature-identical, animal-free proteins to market at scale, Perfect Day has unmatched expertise and potential for impact, which it can’t maximize alone. By giving access to essential tools and infrastructure, nth allows partners like Onego to accelerate the things our world needs to move in a more sustainable direction. The best way to change the world for the better is to work with others to create broader impact. The potential is exponential.
Scaling this newest part of Perfect Day’s business augments the impact of the company’s ongoing work bringing animal-free products to consumers via its B2B ingredient partners and consumer brands under The Urgent Company. Perfect Day has already produced more animal-free whey protein in the first half of this year than it did in all of 2021 and has unlocked the capacity to produce thousands of metric tons starting next year through its four commercial-scale facilities around the world. Consumers can find kinder, greener products made with Perfect Day’s first ingredient, animal-free whey protein, across six categories in three countries.
