Obtaining an alternative protein source from the by-products of the food industry itself.
Human food is currently the activity that has the greatest impact on the planet: 80% of deforestation is due to the expansion of cropland, 79% of which is used to feed livestock. The food industry is responsible for 24% of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere and demand for protein will increase by up to 70% by 2050. In contrast, resource extraction will only increase by 10%.
At MOA we are working to transform this reality, obtaining an alternative protein source from the by-products of the food industry itself, obtaining unicellular protein with a nutritional profile superior to that of vegetable proteins due to its content in essential amino acids, B vitamins, beta-glucans and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
By combining biotechnology and artificial intelligence, we will achieve a circular, healthier, more efficient and sustainable food industry.
