  • Investors have often found the animal protein industry difficult due to several variabilities and risks. We believe there is an opportunity to be a leader in this field and apply world’s best practices in all aspects of production.

    Hamish Webb, TerraProtein Equity Partners
  • The demand for food has reached unprecedented levels and with the availability of limited resources it poses an immense challenge for the future. It is scary to think how the world would look in 2030 or beyond if nothing is done today. The call to action is now.
