Clean Ingredients using Green Chemistry

Research & Development of Sustainable Plant-based products and ingredients

Reimagining Food Waste.

Food industry is one of the biggest contributors of climate change. In particular, food waste accounts for 6%-8% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions (World Wildlife Fund 2023), and is in need of innovative solutions. 

At Biophyter, we are helping food and beverage processors uncovering the power of their plant-based byproducts by repurposing them into sustainable ingredients and products while driving community climate action.
