This strategic combination of services within close proximity, along with Cutthroat Laboratories and Bearhat, allows for full access to expertise ranging from green chemistry to biological manufacturing, natural colors to novel flavor compounds, industrial lifecycle improvements to new product development. The partnerships combine biological intelligence, design thinking, concept development, and rapid prototypes in a process that delivers more cost-effective solutions to a variety of industries.

“Working in the front-end of innovation requires we continuous adaptation and evolution of our work to meet the needs of our clients. Our partnership with Blue Marble enables us to take our work further into the prototyping process, making it easier for companies to advance biomimicry projects. It’ll be exciting to showcase how quickly this allows us to get groundbreaking innovations off the shelf and into the marketplace,” said Nicole Miller, Biomimicry 3.8 Managing Director.

Blue Marble takes a holistic approach as an innovation service provider. As of last fall, Blue Marble launched Cutthroat Laboratories, an analytical service company designed to offer global quality services to small and medium sized organizations looking for guidance in food safety, science, and product development. As of March 2018, Blue Marble has been able to effectively demonstrate their support of intrapreneurship by taking technological innovations to market through their indie brand, Bearhat. As Blue Marble continues to build a diverse network of innovation services, opportunities emerge for clients to impact the market with a complete sustainability story. “There is added value to interacting with our ecosystem of partners,” states James Stephens, CEO of Blue Marble. “We can now offer a complete package of solutions that matches the sustainability story consumers are demanding.”

COBREW’s founder Taylor Woods states, “We are very excited about our partnership with Blue Marble Biomaterials. Their existing fermentation infrastructure coupled with various CO2 end use applications provides a great technology incubator to design, test, and optimize our equipment to better meet the needs of various customers within the food, beverage and industrial industries. Being in the same ecosystem has allowed COBREW to push beyond its original brewery customer and explore other food and beverage applications where sustainability and cost sensitivities exist.”

All six companies will demonstrate their work together at the upcoming International Food and Technology (IFT) trade show, July 15-18, in Chicago, Illinois, Booth #S1662. Trade show attendees will be able to ideate and innovate along with chemists, engineers, biomimetics, microbiologists, and product developers to learn how Blue Marble’s ecosystem is transforming the industrial ecosystem.
