VNF has just won the ‘Future of Nutrition’ Innovation award at the 2019 Fi Europe show organized in Paris as the most innovative company that with its solutions will likely ‘disrupt accepted food supply chains beyond 5 years’. Our pioneering technology to use a biotechnological zero-waste mindset to extract value from shrimp co-products and turn it into food products won widespread acclaim as an alternative source of protein for the world’s growing population.
Simultaneously, we were able to show that not only were our production practices aligned to sustainability, but that our work in creating value from shrimp co-products (through the production of all our products within the food, animal feed, chitin/chitosan, and organic fertilizer segments) overall contributed to reducing negative environmental impacts.
As in the recent years, the Fi Innovation awards are regarded as the most prestigious competition within the food ingredients industry. There were many big and so we were honestly very doubtful that we could have a chance to win. VNF is extremely proud of this achievement, as this was an entire company team effort and shows that the strategy and vision we are pursuing is well-supported and appreciated by many people worldwide.
