Myconeos wins £200,000 Innovate UK SMART Grant to develop new strains of Penicillium camemberti

OCTOBER 2021

This Innovate UK SMART Grant is a fantastic opportunity for Myconeos, allowing us to apply our ground breaking asexual fungal breeding technology to achieve sexual breeding of P. camemberti strains and associated IP surrounding our second generation of novel Penicillium strains for the cheese market. The project started in July 2021, the project will enable Myconeos to develop novel strains for rapid deployment into the soft cheese and meat industries.

Myconeos has been developing our groundbreaking Penicillium strain breeding technology over the last 2 years and are just about to launch a range of novel P. roqueforti strains into the cheese industry in the UK. You can learn more about our work and its application on the Food Unwrapped Programme which aired on Channel 4 on the 23 August 2021 at 20:00.
