Using a natural resource, we provide high-quality alternative protein while combating some of the most pressing environmental issues we face today.
By 2050, the global population will rise to around 9 billion. This means that demand for protein will dramatically rise as well. Here is the problem: most animals that people consume for protein, specifically chickens, cattle, pigs and fish are extremely resource-intensive and heavily rely on unsustainable feed. Chickens, cattle and pigs feed on grains that require vast amounts of land and water, both of which are scarce resources. Fish are fed fishmeal, which is feed made out of marine captured fish and is one of the main ingredients in farmed fish feed. Millions of tonnes of fish are caught every year just to produce fishmeal. Not only does this contribute to the collapse of marine life, but it also directly threatens our food security.
