Company 5 is a business dedicated to the production of new, sustainable protein ingredients for aquaculture, livestock, and household pets. There are many aspects of their product that set Company 5 apart from their peers; it is non-GMO, price competitive with existing sources of protein, and produced to the highest quality standards.

That’s not all – their venture is also:

  1. Sustainable – Their unique process uses waste and by-products from agriculture
  2. Environmentally Friendly – Company 5 has a minimal carbon footprint and water requirements, and highly efficient land use.
  3. Legal – Their feed ingredients are already recognised as legal in the E.U., U.S.A. and other important markets.
  4. Safe – Company 5’s protein ingredients contain no toxins or feed inhibitors whatsoever.

We greatly admire the simple yet effective concept upon which Company 5 operates – they extract nutrients from agricultural waste and by-products, which would otherwise be considered refuse, and convert it into a highly concentrated protein product for aquaculture and livestock feed. This helps the environment in multiple ways; not only does it reduce agricultural waste matter, but it also helps reduce the over-fishing and inefficient land use associated with current feed production. Their production process, furthermore, has a far lower carbon footprint than destructive ingredients such as soy.

It has been a real pleasure working with Company 5 so far – we recognise that as a corporate systems accelerator, we are in a unique position to support businesses as they grow to meet the demands of an ever-shifting market. This is not a responsibility we take lightly; it is crucial for us to work with companies who are aligned with our values and our mission to radically transform the sustainability performance of the 10 industry value chains most responsible for biodiversity decline.

We are proud, therefore, to have the opportunity to work with Company 5; we believe they are a real game-changer, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact they have on the environment with our support.

The CEO of Company 5 shares this feeling, stating that the venture’s placement in the FEED-X Programme “is a tremendous statement. It is vital that organisations such as Skretting and WWF are supporting this challenge. Being a part of this programme is a wonderful validation for [Company 5].”
