Founded in 2020, New Zealand-headquartered biotechnology company Nutrition from Water utilizes microalgae technology to create highly nutritious, non GMO, protein-packed nutrition and specialised food ingredients. Microalgae require a fraction of the water, land, and time as other protein sources and emit a fraction of greenhouse gases. Nutrition from Water’s products have a complete amino acid profile, offering protein and nutritional ingredient solutions for sports and active lifestyles. This way, the solution enables the sustainable use of ocean and water resources for economic growth while maintaining a circular ecosystem.

Nutrition from Water is proud of its partnership with New Zealand’s Cawthron Institute in Nelson, as well as receiving support from New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries’ Sustainable Food & Fibre Futures fund, as the parties explore native microalgae strains and optimise their growth conditions fit for human nutrition.
