We live in challenging times of a disrupted climate, glaring disparities of acute food shortages, poor food habits, and persistent waste. When it comes to our food. There is a gap between the food amounts available today and what’s needed tomorrow. So, we need more and better food. We want a real solution instead of just talking about it; more action, less words. And we’re convinced that if produced correctly, algae are vital to the solution.
Algae for a better planet
The necessity to reduce agriculture’s environmental impact is ever-present, even in regions where economic and social development is a high priority. The reality is that far-reaching global hunger is set against inefficient and environmentally unfriendly farming practices.
The present decade will be the last chance to keep global warming and global biodiversity loss at an acceptable level for the survival of humankind. It is our joint future and our common duty to act fundamentally differently. Algae can convert the current paradigm shift into a real-life transformation of our food systems.
Want to know how? By tackling the challenges mass algae cultivation faces, securing food and feed safety, providing volumes that fit industry needs, and with secure processing, which is economically feasible, all in keeping with the sustainability and circularity goals we set out.
Algae for a better health
Recent decades have seen an enormous shift in food choices and food habits. Scaled-up operations to cater for global markets have consequently and unfortunately led to the rise of reconstituted, resource-intensive products, which are less well nutritionally balanced, resulting in health risks.
Eating well helps to reduce the risk of physical health problems. Nutritional strategies can stabilise or even reverse the disease process itself. Here, the most successful examples come from chronic disorders directly associated with an unhealthy lifestyle, specifically obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes type 2 and comorbidities.
