This follows recent confirmation of the Calysseo 50/50 joint venture between Adisseo and Calysta, the world’s leading alternative protein producer.
Pierre Casamatta (Adisseo Sr Project Director Alternative Proteins) and Thomas Huot (Calysta), the two Executive directors of Calysseo, have signed an investment protocol with the directors of the CETDA industrial park in Changshou.
Dc Hao Zhigang, chairman of Bluestar Group and Adisseo, said he was delighted to join the investment signing ceremony, which marks another key step for the rollout of Adisseo business diversification strategy as well as its China development strategy.
Mr Zheng Xiangdong, Deputy Mayor of Chongqing, on behalf of Chongqing government and Changshou Region, extended his warm welcome and sincere gratitude to Bluestar Group, Adisseo and Calysta for choosing Changshou Region as the home of FeedKind production facility.
FeedKind® is produced via natural fermentation of natural gas, an abundant source of energy to create a safe, nutritious, traceable and affordable protein. It is made using very little water and no agricultural land.
Through this new business, Adisseo is tackling one of the key challenges faced by the aquaculture industry – to provide high quality seafood to the rapidly growing world population and the increased demand in Asia, without adding extra pressures to the environment.
The FeedKind® production facility, expected to begin operating in 2022, will produce 20,000 tonnes per annum in the first phase to provide exclusive supply for Asian markets. A later expansion to 100,000 tonnes is also planned on several phases.
