We invest in projects that support the reduction of organic waste going to landfil or biogas plants by upcycling it into feed and food.
The ability to regenerate products and materials back into the biosphere through non-toxic, restorative loops lies at the heart of protein upcycling. Moving away from a focus on the technical nutrient load towards a closer consideration of biological nutrients means that improvements in quality are often possible, and that ultimately food ‘waste’ can become high-quality feedstock that puts valuable nutrients back into the biosphere.
Our Investment Company: Sustainable Protein
Sustainable Protein focuses on commercialising industrial scale insect-based technologies to upcycle organic feedstocks. Through our Sustainable Protein company we developed a programme through which organic waste is effectively converted into high-quality protein, which can then be used as animal feed and pet food.
