EIT Crisis Response Initiative Budget: EUR: 466 200
Innovation: NapiFeryn extracts protein from rapeseed oil production waste streams, providing a sustainable alternative to animal-derived proteins. The protein is as nutritional as plant-based market leader soy, creating a product that is more sustainable and affordable for consumers.
Expected Results: NapiFeryn has the potential to transform the protein market by reducing food insecurity and increasing plant-based eating habits of consumers around the world. The investment provided by the COVID-19 Bridge Fund will help to execute its ongoing research and development activities, leading to commercialisation of novel, plant-based, functional food ingredients derived from rapeseed.
