Remilk's Animal-Free Dairy Protein Approved in Israel

The Israeli Ministry of Health (MOH) has granted Remilk, a global leader in the development and production of dairy protein free of animal products, a first-of-its-kind approval. This landmark regulatory development paves the way for Israeli consumers to purchase non-animal dairy products made with Remilk. Additionally, it makes the nation one of the first in the world to provide access to real, sustainable dairy products free of lactose, cholesterol, antibiotics, and growth hormones that are produced without using any cows.

Remilk uses a unique precision fermentation process to create milk proteins made without the use of animals. The Ministry of Health's approval comes after Remilk received an FDA "No Questions Letter," indicating that the FDA agreed with the conclusion of an expert panel that Remilk's animal-free protein can be used in food products safely under its GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) standards, as well as a recent regulatory clearance from the Singapore Food Authority.

Remilk has signed contracts with top players in the international food industry and has raised more than $130M to date. Remilk announced a significant commercial agreement with the Central Bottling Company (CBC Group), the exclusive Israeli franchisee of Coca-Cola and one of the biggest food companies in Israel, last year to launch a line of dairy products made with Remilk's protein for the Israeli market. Remilk is already producing its protein in industrial volumes in facilities around the world.

Aviv Wolff, CEO and co-founder of Remilk, said, "This is a defining moment, not only for Remilk, but for the entire global alternative protein industry and the state of Israel, one of the first in the world to recognize the significance of precision fermentation," said Aviv Wolff, CEO and co-founder of Remilk. "The opening of the Israeli market to real, animal-free dairy products will place Israel not only at the forefront of global food-tech research and development, but also as a leading market in the world for new food consumption. Today's news opens the door for the introduction of high-quality and nutritious animal-free dairy products."

According to Dr. Ori Cohavi, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and co-founder of Remilk, "We thank the Ministry of Health for an in-depth process, in which our non-animal milk protein was thoroughly tested and found to be safe, of high-quality, and identical to its cow-derived counterpart," said Dr. Ori Cohavi, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and co-founder of Remilk.

"The breakthrough achievement of Remilk's R&D team lies in its success in converting a technology that has been used for decades to create components for the food industry such as vitamins and enzymes in small quantities, to produce one of the most significant and high-quality components in the food industry. Our milk protein, produced on an industrial scale, allows us to practically change the face of the dairy market."
