Client Success Details
With an emphasis on leveraging ideas from both within and outside the food industry, the company’s aspiration was clear:
|This innovation in pet food production sources cost-effective, sustainable ingredients through Low-Cost Waste Valorization, contributing significantly to a more eco-conscious and economically viable future
Seamlessly blending automation tools with human expertise an in-depth program was conducted based on web-based research, patent literature studies, scientific literature reviews, and executive discussions following which a three-phase approach was implemented:
- Scanning of different processes of waste streams in food, agriculture, energy, and plant processing.
- Ingredients/sources obtained that can be utilized for animal feed/pet food application.
- Technology/process developers to utilize the waste sources/co-products/by-products
- Prioritizing opportunity clusters
- Analysis of the technology readiness level to utilize waste streams.
- Uniqueness/proprietary details for relevant utilization/pre-treatment technologies
- Technology developers for identified solutions with value-creation features.
- Analysis of potential technologies/ ingredients/ product
- Identification of unique and emerging ingredients with cost saving benefit
- Adoption feasibility of ingredients for short-term, midterm, and long-term
- Potential collaborators for regenerative practices
The engagement involved a comprehensive weak signal program to identify early-stage technologies for waste valorization. The following key steps were included:
Benefits to the client included:
- Identified low-cost waste streams with high protein content for optimized ingredient selection.
- Enabled the client to establish strategic partnerships with reliable protein ingredient suppliers.
- Pioneered the implementation of sustainable practices in ingredient sourcing for a more eco-conscious approach
