Projects and funding


Period 01.07.2015-31.12.2022​


BioCC LLC carries out interdisciplinary and internationally recognized R&D to create, develop and implement innovative biotechnological solutions for feed, food and dietary supplements, integrating its knowledge and expertise with international knowledge and expertise in the field of microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, metabolomics, genomics, physiology, and medicine.

BioCC LLC’s project HEALTHY FOOD comprises two areas:

I  Research area 1 – Health-Promoting Food


1.1. to develop products with increased nutrient density for the general population and specific population groups
1.2. to develop functional products on the basis of probiotic strains
1.3. to establish a biotechnological platform based on biomarkers and novel selection traits for resource-effective production of high-quality raw milk with elevated nutrient density to meet increased consumer demand

II  Research area 2 – Food Challenge / demands in personalized medicine

Period 15.08.2019-14.04.2022

Short description:

Bio4ASIA is a cooperation project between two similar companies working in the same industry – producing of food supplements – and based on similar needs and ambitions:  to expand and diverse market of their products in order to develop companies and make them competitive in long terms. However, both companies are having different competences and strenghts in different areas of producing and distribution. BioCC OÜ is focused on work with high qualitative lactic acid bacteria cultures  and LotosPharma SIA is producing wide assortment of dry forms of medicine and food supplement.


The main objective of the Bio4ASIA project is to increase competitiveness of the Project partners in order to expand and diverse the market and ensure long term stability of the production and growth of the turnover.


  1. a new dietary supplement – digestive stimulant for  South-East Asia market ready to be registered (full documents package including at least 12 months stability results (the minimum lenght of shelf-life)),
  2. new contacts, developed existing contacts during participation in 4-5 international fairs,
  3. signed intention letters or similar agreements on the further cooperation on distribution of EE / LV products.

The focus of the Bio-Competence Centre of Healthy Dairy Products (project EU 30002) was to enhance the industry’s competitiveness and profitability through innovative solutions, encompassing the whole chain (feed industry, dairy breeding and nutrition, dairy technology, human nutrition and medicine) of the production of healthy added-value milk and dairy products.

EU30002 comprises 2 strategic development areas

Strategic development area 1

Sustainable breeding and nutritional strategies to produce compositionally designed milk to promote milk biotechnological properties, foster human health, and increase the profitability of milk production

The objective of the development area was to promote the biotechnological properties of milk, foster human health and increase the profitability of the dairy sector through the creation of strategies to produce compositionally designed milk and dairy products.

Strategic development area 2

Development of research-based functional dairy foods and establishment of innovative biotechnological applications/platforms for food enterprises (microbiological, biochemical and clinical approach).

The development area was focused on the development of research-based functional dairy foods (FF) aimed at reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and recurrent inflammatory diseases and the establishment of innovative biotechnological platforms for enterprises.
