Welcome to the Golden Age of Cheese without the use of animals. In the NewMilkLab of Those Vegan Cowboys vegan dairy-type products are developped, indistinguishable in flavor, structure, nutritional properties and values from our familiar milk, cheese, yoghurt and butter. Sustainable fermentative production of dairy proteins is the way forward. Kathleen Piens, will walk you through our mission.
Kathleen is Director and Head of Downstream Processing at Those Vegan Cowboys. Before joining the cowboys she worked for nine years at Oxyrane Belgium as a team leader responsible for the characterization and the release of yeast produced lysosomal enzymes. Kathleen obtained a PhD in Biochemistry at Ghent University in 2001 and ever since she has had the opportunity to explore the fascinating world of proteins and enzymes in both an academic and industrial setting.
