about us

we are innovative minds that encourage people and industries to rethink how we see and treat the 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 people and our globe. That’s why GALY is revolutionizing the way we produce cotton today and thereby sparking a much more sustainable agriculture. And we are inviting people, brands and industries 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 an exciting new area in 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. We are on it! 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 truly new: cotton grown from cells in a facility, not plants on a field. Believe it, many of our planet’s largest challenges can be solved by looking for solutions found in nature. The intersection where technology and nature meet is our sweet spot.

we are an army of dreamers creating a new world of transparency where only brands committed to honesty and sustainability 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 mind, we gather a team of highly diverse subjects, 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 have achieved so far as a team

One of the most important steps in our journey to make our childhood’s dream come true was winning the two most-recognized prizes in the industry, the Global Change Award 2020 and the LVMH Innovation Award 2021. 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.
