‘This is clearly the way to go’: Pascual unveils Mylkcubator 2.0 as it eyes opportunities in emerging cellular agriculture technology

The initiative was launched by the company’s Corporate Venture unit Pascual Innoventures in partnership with Eatable Adventures, a global accelerator for food technology. Four start-ups that are disrupting the world of food technology were among those who completed last year’s first edition.

Mylkcubator2.0 will run for six months from the time of selection until the day on which it is demoted. It is hoped to enroll a new group of start-ups and scientific projects with innovative solutions to the cellular farming spectrum for dairy industries. The official website of mylkcubator.com contains all details.

Cream of the crop

Pascual Innoventures explained it has flexible venturing models that build, collaborate and support food tech start-ups in their early stages. Incubators will assist selected start-ups with their R&D and business development strategies. This will prepare them for investment rounds and growth.

“The quality of the start-ups selected in the first edition has been amazing and shows us that this is, clearly, the way to go,” said Gabriel Pascual, director of Pascual Innoventures. ” The visibility and investment rounds they receive is evidence that this industry is ready for the technological shift. Pascual was a leader in promoting innovation and nonconformism. An attitude that has been hatched generation after generation from my grandfather until our generation.”

Luis Cabanero, CEO and founder of Eatable Adventures, added: “Mylkcubator has attracted the attention of companies, technology centres and professional investors from all over the world demonstrating that there is a great opportunity in the market to implement scalable technological solutions to future proof the dairy industry.”

Proof of this is that investment in the dairy segment has tripled in 2021, compared with 2020, according to Dealroom data analysed by Eatable Adventures. Pascual says that the industry has huge potential to produce dairy products by using both cell culture and fermentation methods. These techniques are complementary within the dairy sector and offer great opportunities for economic and ecological sustainability.

The Madrid-based Mylkcubator program was launched in June 2013. It is a result of the recognition that cow-free milk has the potential disrupt traditional dairy operations and to complement them.

Pascual also explained how traditional dairy players are helping to advance next-generation dairy production. “Technologically it has the potential to disrupt traditional dairy operations,” he said. “ It is our duty to participate in that disruption and to plan ahead.

“Wherever the world might take us, we need to take responsibility in providing opportunities. We need to work with the ecosystem to ensure that traditional dairy operations don’t get disrupted in any way .” .
