Immobazyme is a biotech spin-out company from Stellenbosch University that is revolutionizing the production of high-value active protein ingredients through precision fermentation.

In 2019, three friends gathered over a beer and opened the discussion of Immobazyme - a company that would leverage innovative technologies and environmentally responsible practices to drive sustainable growth in scientific research and development in South Africa.


This concept quickly evolved into a thriving start-up, focused on bringing cutting-edge biologics to markets that were previously constrained by cost or implementation challenges. Today, the company has expanded significantly from its founding team of three master's candidates to a team of seven highly skilled and experienced scientists, all of who are committed to catalysing the future of global innovation through precision fermentation.
