A welcome return

For 15 years World Bio Markets has been uniting and connecting the bioeconomy value chain from lab to market and driving change through commercially viable innovation.


World Bio Markets connects and generates deal flow between bio producers, global FMCG brands, investors and suppliers and provides a forum for cross sector knowledge exchange and transfer as we accelerate the transition to a post petroleum economy. 

The level of participation was excellent and I had the chance to connect with numerous people across markets for both insightful and commercially relevant discussions. I really enjoyed the two days of the Meetup and the professionalism of the team and the results we achieved means we will definitely be returning”.

Karl Johan Tärbe
Business Development Director, EnginZyme
