Aquaculture is going to play a very important role in supplying the world with sufficient animal protein in the upcoming decades. However, the growth of the aquaculture industry is going to be limited by a lack of current resources and inefficient processes. Furthermore, fish populations are being overfished and rainforests are transformed into agricultural land. Blue Chitin wants to achieve a major reduction in such overexploitation. Therefore, we need to do more with less!
Alternative dairy products still fall short of having ideal sensory, functional and nutritional characteristics, and don't yet appeal to the majority of consumers.
We envision a future in which manufacturers can rely on ingredients that make alternative dairy palatable and functionally identical to traditional dairy products. A future in which traditional dairy production can rescale to former sustainable dimensions, without compromising consumer satisfaction.
Dairy products have an essential role in human nutrition. Unfortunately, cattle farming requires a great number of resources and has a remarkable impact on the environment. ProProtein aims to satisfy the protein need of the growing human population by providing a novel technology for the production of dairy proteins but in a new, environmental-friendly way.
We are seeking to increase the protein and fiber content in puffed snack foods. With this in mind, we want to convert fish hydrolysate and mustard seed cakes into puffs, through extrusion processing. These are incredibly nutritious and cheap ingredients but are underutilized as food ingredients. We can believe we can successfully produce and market this product using our food engineering and entrepreneurship skillset.
We believe that plant-based eating is the future. It is sustainable, healthy, and animal–friendly (Sabaté & Soret, 2014). We want to make it easier to start eating a healthy plant–based diet by providing personalized and complete information. In the long-term, we hope to enable people to make more plant-based choices.
*Update: A specific problem we want to address is the difficulty of eating plant–based in people diseases and dietary intolerances/allergies.
Our vision at ProMeat is to enable the protein transition, by empowering developing countries to remain or transition into plant-based diets along with making the global food system sustainable, by providing nutritious, healthy, sustainable and locally relevant plant-based meat alternatives.
In the long term, we aim to increase the food security of the developing world and India.
To increase the availability of produced plant-based alternative protein without relying on long supply chains, building
the largest community of producers and manufacturers by offering smart tailored solutions using advanced technology,
reducing the need for long-supply chains, thus reducing waste, carbon footprint to encourage a self-sustainable future.
Currently, over 800M haven’t the luxury of a-meal-a-day; by 2050, it will be 1.1B. Immediate paradigm shifts are needed in both the production and supply chain in the food industry. As an integrated B2B social entrepreneurial venture, we aim to biorefine Spirulina for large-scale nutritional solutions for malnourished populations at subsidized rates, while simultaneously commercializing industrially valuable chemicals from Spirulina for the Food & Beverage (F&B), Pharmaceutical, and Cosmetics, industries.
Our aim is to reuse the side stream of canola oil processing, the rapeseed press cake, and use it in noodles production. This would help repurposing a side stream and producing a new product which offers a complete meal high in protein content. In long term we hope to introduce proteins from a less used plant based source and deliver a nutritious protein rich meal to the market.
