just for a moment imagine a world where everyone could enjoy this deep-sea delicacy with none of the allergic – religious or environmental setbacks—and without actually killing the little guys.
This is the future New Wave Foods wants to create.
Since 2015 the California-based startup has been developing the world’s first algae- and plant-based shrimp.
You read that right.
By using ‘cutting-edge science’ the company claims it has been able to create a shrimp that is ‘uncompromising in taste’.
With support from Indie Bio – the world’s largest biotech accelerator – New Wave Foods has already begun to roll out its product to certain schools and catering companies and by early 2018 plans to begin retailing its shrimp in California and Nevada.
