Power to Protein

A disruptive technology for producing valuable proteins for the eco-oriented human food industry

May 2021
Gallery Power to Protein 1
Gallery Power to Protein 1


Because of the growing population and the growing inclusion of meat in daily diets, the need for protein is rising. Protein shortages will be aggravated by a drop in land and water availability. Strongly related to intensive deforestation, eutrophication and overfishing, the use of soy or fishmeal and the production of animal protein cannot meet populations needs and have a significant negative impact on the environment. POWER TO PROTEIN is a sustainable and natural protein production process, using clean water, carbon dioxide and green energy. This innovative production process is highly sustainable in terms of energy-, material- and land- use. The fermentation is free of pesticides, hormones or antibiotics. Local production of high-quality proteins will lower the independence of import. The Solution is 100% gmo-free, contains more than 70% of protein but also vitamin B12. The production process is modular and can easily be integrated into local food supply systems.
