SHARM EL-SHEIKH, EGYPT – One of 10 Israeli startups chosen to represent the country at this year’s UN Climate Change Conference, animal-free dairy developer Remilk sent co-founders Aviv Wolff and Ori Cohavi to showcase the company’s potential at COP27.

Remilk’s patented animal-free protein makes dairy products that are lactose-free and contain neither hormones nor cholesterol.

"It was inspiring and motivating to be engaged with other thought leaders and innovators at COP27, all of whom share a similar vision and hope as Remilk," said Wolff, the company’s chief executive officer. "At Remilk, our mission is to harness growing consumer demand for products that nourish both people and planet, to completely transform the food industry as we know it. Our goals feel more achievable than ever."

Wolff joined other leading entrepreneurs to speak during an opening event at the climate conference and highlighted how innovators and industry can assist as the world seeks to achieve important climate goals. The company shared that Wolff and Cohavi also met with diplomats and thought leaders to discuss ways to accelerate food tech.

"Remilk is committed to reinventing the dairy industry in a kind, sustainable way,” said Cohavi, the company’s chief technology officer. “Eliminating the need for animals in our food system is the only way to supply our world's growing demand without destroying it in the process.”

The company earlier this year reached a commercial agreement with Central Bottling Company (CBC Group) to sell consumer products. Remilk also is building a large full-scale precision fermentation facility in Kalundborg, Denmark.
