With FeedKind®, Calysta is a world leader in developing a sustainable solution to meeting the widening protein gap. FeedKind is a safe, nutritious, traceable and price competitive protein that has been commercially validated through extensive trials.
Our patented production process uses no agricultural land and very little water. Completely additive to the food chain, it helps us meet the world’s growing demand for food without placing extra stress on our planet’s resources.
FeedKind can be a sustainable substitute for other proteins such as fishmeal and soy protein concentrate, which are currently the primary sources of protein used in commercial aquaculture and livestock farming.
One commercial scale FeedKind protein plant, if used to replace soy products for fish feed, would free up enough land to feed as many as 250,000 people. The land area represented is equal to an area the size of Chicago, Illinois.
Calysta offers the shrimp aquaculture industry a new level of transparency by introducing a sustainable protein allowing users to determine whether a shrimp was fed FeedKind with a simple test. When combined with leading certification standards, producers, retailers and consumers can be guaranteed that their food is free from the taint of modern slavery.
More widely, this provides additional piece of mind for consumers, retailers and manufacturers over the source, safety and sustainability of their food. We are already closely collaborating with a number of the world’s most influential companies to bring FeedKind’s built-in traceability to the aquaculture and livestock supply chains, bring greater transparency to ensure products are ethical, sustainable and produced to the best standards possible.
