TurtleTree Opens Sacramento, California, R&D Campus

10/15/2021
A biotech company that's using cell-based technologies to create sustainable food and dairy, TurtleTree launched a new R&D Facility in West Sacramento, California. The project is expected to create 40 new tech-related jobs in the region.

According to company officials, the facility marks a significant moment towards the production of consumer-ready milk and dairy. The 24,000-square-foot building will house a world-class research hub showcasing the company's extensive array of innovations and cell-based technologies.

“Establishing this R&D facility in Greater Sacramento marks the first step towards bringing our unique products from development to market, one that we're very glad will help unlock new opportunities within the local community,” said TurtleTree's CEO and co-founder, Fengru Lin. “We're eagerly looking forward to working with the brilliant talent in the area and building a future generation of nutrition that we can all enjoy for decades to come."

Representing a milestone in TurtleTree's US-based expansion plans, the research facility will spur the development of precision fermentation technology currently used to produce valuable milk ingredients like lactoferrin, officials explained.

"We want to congratulate TurtleTree for locating their R&D and manufacturing facility in West Sacramento,” added President and CEO of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, Barry Broome. “This move signals market validation of why Greater Sacramento is world-class in biotech, specifically alternative proteins research."

Aside from functioning as a research hub, the R&D facility will also serve as an integral touchpoint for TurtleTree to connect and collaborate with educational institutions, research-focused partners, strategic partners, future customers, and investors.
