THE FUTURE OF FOOD: Disrupting protein production with microalgae

Project description

Healthy food for our future

Food security is an emerging concern particularly as we consider the rapidly growing human population. Food must be sourced that is nutritious, abundant, and safe for the ecosystem. One of the most successful actors in the field is a French start-up company Kyanos that was awarded the Most Novel Protein Process & IT award in 2018. Thanks to their Cyclotrophy technology, they can produce environment-healthy, contaminant-free, safe, and effective food. Based on processed protein from AFA microalgae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae), their product does not require much space to grow. Thanks to the EU-funded AFactory project, the first products will be ready for market in two years.
