- Tony Martens, co-founder at Plantible Foods, which is extracting RuBisCO protein from lemna, a fast-growing aquatic plant
- Adam Noble, co-founder and CEO of Noblegen, which is growing an ancient micro-organism called euglena gracilis that naturally produces a range of ingredients from proteins, to beta-glucans with immune health benefits
- Dr Bryan Tracy, co-founder of Superbrewed Food, which is growing a whole food ingredient from a bacteria that’s very high in protein that works particularly well in dairy-free cheeses and other products
