about us →

we are innovative minds encouraging people, brands and industries to rethink how we see and treat our planet

As human beings, we are always looking for more: more resources, more achievements, more material possessions. Galy was born as a response to this reflection. We believe that excess is not equal to abundance. Galy is envisioning a world where we can still produce sought-after materials without the physical turmoil we place on disadvantaged peoples and our globe. That is why Galy is revolutionizing the way we produce cotton today and thereby sparking a much more sustainable way of doing agriculture. And we are inviting brands to join us in this mission.

we create lab-grown applications to disrupt the industry and honor Mother Earth

The future of agriculture is cellular agriculture, and GALY is proud to be at the forefront of this exciting new area of technology. We are reinventing one of the most toxic chains in the market, bringing science, information and education to people. But, nobody takes innovation seriously until you scale it. We are on to that! By developing intelligent scale-up strategies with cotton cells, since the in vitro cotton production market has never been done on an industrial scale, we are capable of doing something truely new. Believe: many of our planet’s largest challenges can be solved by looking to solutions found in nature. The intersection where technology and nature meet is our the sweet spot.

we are an army of dreamers creating a new world where only sustainable brands can survive

Galy means reverence to the divine in Nature. We make science respecting the sacred balance of the environment. We believe that artists are the scientists of this new era. With that in our mind, we gather a team of highly diverse disciplines, ranging from genetic engineering, plant cell culture, bioreactor development, mathematics, statistics, designers, high-performance automation, stylists, illustrators, creative business development, marketing and branding strategies. A group with a strong sense of purpose on a mission to find ways to carve out new ethical practices to take care of our world, so that it may continue to take care of us.

we are proud of what we achieved as a team so far

One of the most important steps on our journey to make our childhood’s dream come true was winning the Global Change Award 2020. It’s mind blowing! This is the kind of recognition that not only validates our vision as a company, but also makes it clear that we are on the right path.
