What Sets Us Apart

Rapid Scale-Up

Once you have found the perfect strain, the final step to commercialization is to scale your product. We have the team and facilities to allow you to scale rapidly, accurately, and economically. From pilot scale product to customer trials to manufacturing scale, once you are ready to go to market, MDG has you covered.

Capacity

With 35,000 liters (and growing) of large-scale fermentation capability and the downstream process to match, MDG can provide our clients with speedy turnaround times. Getting strains out the door in 90 days or less makes your final stage to manufacturing a seamless process.

Certifications

MDG is FSMA-compliant and HACCP-certified for food and feed cultures and products. GMP is a core element of FSMA and HACCP. It covers everything from the cleanliness of the facility to the handling of ingredients and finished products. At MDG, GMP is implemented for all production processes, regardless of market.

In-House Blending and Packaging

The need to outsource has become a thing of the past for MDG customers. Our fermentation capabilities are complemented by our extensive in-house downstream processes. This saves our customers time and money by providing various blending and packaging capabilities in-house.

MDG Employees

We firmly believe one of our biggest assets is our people. MDG is proud to employ an experienced staff that truly cares about our customer’s—and our—vision to Feed, Clean, Save the World.

Real Science, Trusted Process, Proven Success

It’s our foundation and our promise. A strong scientific understanding of Bacillus and our optimized fermentation processes consistently yields measurable success for our customers.
