The Protein Challenge 2040: Shaping the future of food

By 2040 we will have to feed a world population of 9 billion

Conventional protein sources such as soy and fishmeal have a very large geographical and ecological footprint

Protein prices are increasing because of increasing demand and limited supply

The feed and food industry is scouting for sustainable and high quality alternatives

ProMic - Protein from Microbes - is Avecom's answer to these problems. It is a patented process, upgrading undervalued streams to microbial protein resulting in a high quality and affordable feed & foodstuff

The concept

anaerobic digester

Upgrading of undervalued side streams which are rich in energy and/or nutrients. These streams can have whatever background, but should always be free of fecal matter and contain no toxins or heavy metals.


The endproduct is rich in protein and has extra-beneficial effects.


99% of the fed nutrients end up in the end product


ProMic consumes 100 times less water than conventional soy protein production


ProMic land use is a factor 1000 lower in comparison to conventional soy protein production

The process

ProMic Premium Scheme

The product

With this process and product, Avecom wants to offer a sustainable, affordable and locally produced alternative for high-quality feed- and foodstuffs which are now either unsustainable produced or limited in supply.
