MicroHarvest

Microharvest has a patented technology that allows producing nutritional biomass from extremely fast-growing bacteria, with potential applications across the whole protein value chain.

YieldX

YieldX is the first AIoT-driven (combines IoT and AI), data platform to predict and early detect critical Biosecurity events through senses. Targeting Poultry integrations, the company deploys an IoT platform that continuously monitors environmental, operational, physiological and behavioral parameters in order to create the most significant meta data picture for fast and reliable Biosecurity-related insights and actions.

Aquaculture start-ups:

Aquanzo

Aquanzo produces sustainable marine proteins. Focusing on zooplankton farming solutions, for aquafeed. Their vision is to maximise sustainable aquaculture outputs while protecting the ocean.

AquaRech

Aquarech is a platform allowing fish farmers to buy feed, access the tools to operate their farm, and to sell their fish production - efficiently, sustainably, and transparently.​ Its vision is to become the number one service platform for small and medium-sized fish farmers in Africa.​

Cirkulär Bio

Cirkulär AB is working at the intersection of biotechnology and food technology, developing novel approaches to sustainable food production. Fungi-based protein solution with a similar amino acid profile as fishmeal and whey. Reducing the environmental impact of soybean production, and larger scalability.

Organicin Scientific

Organicin Scientific creates a bacteriocin-based functional feed additive. Their functional feed ingredients support sustainable initiatives by preventing disease and gut dysbiosis, and reducing the need for antibiotics.

Tepbac

Aquaculture farm management for fish and shrimp farms, with a digital platform to reduce risks and improve the yield. Through cost, inventory and remote management tools.

Alternative proteins start-ups:

Aïo Tech

Aio Tech is utilizing microbes along with wood industry byproducts as feedstock to sustainably produce lipids that can be used in feed and food.

BioBetter

BioBetter Ltd. has developed a groundbreaking, cost-effective, protein expression plant-based platform to produce complex growth factors for use in cultivated meat. Using a proprietary purification process that reduces production costs and substantially simplifies the process when compared to other currently available purification platforms.

Harmony Baby Nutrition

Milk Care Co., Inc. (“Harmony”) is a food-science based company applying cutting-edge biotechnology to mimic the composition of human breast milk and create the next generation of infant formulas.
