Sustainable Everyday Essentials
low-carbon, low-impact, deforestation-free
starting with palm oil
Sun Bear Bioworks is combining cutting-edge biotechnology and computational methods.
We're producing palm oil with all of the natural benefits, minus the environmental impact.
Why palm oil?
Palm oil is everywhere. It has a higher yield than all other vegetable oils, a unique fat profile and can be found in 50% of packaged supermarket products.
It comes at a price to the planet. Its complex supply chains are hard to trace and create volatile prices. Plantations are created at the expense of tropical rainforest, destroying habitats and resulting in vast carbon emissions.
