Kerry and Ginkgo Bioworks have announced a new technology partnership, working together to develop innovative ways to produce speciality enzymes for the food and beverage industry. 

This partnership marks Ginkgo’s expansion into the enzyme industry, extending the company’s market reach beyond its existing work in core strain improvement and ingredient development.  Kerry produces enzymes through fermentation of its proprietary microbial strains, and will leverage Ginkgo’s technology to improve production. The Ginkgo Biowork’s platform uses automated processes and custom software to design and build microbial strains that can produce valuable products during the process of fermentation, including cultured ingredients and enzymes. This partnership will create a fast and more effective way to create enzymes for the food industry.
