Arbiom was recognized for its proprietary bioconversion process technology, which converts wood into SylPro® enhanced torula yeast, a high-quality alternative to fish meal as a protein source in fish feed. SylPro is a nutritional, economical, traceable and sustainable protein-rich ingredient with enhanced amino acid content that has been developed to meet the needs of aquaculture farmers and feed formulators who are faced with two critical challenges: protein sourcing and gastrointestinal health.

“With fish meal supply shortages and price volatility, the aquaculture industry is trending towards alternative protein sources in feeds,” said Amélie Drouault, Partnerships Manager at Arbiom. “Our technology is addressing these concerns by integrating wood – a historically non-food material – into the food supply chain, producing a natural, sustainable and traceable protein source that is industrially scalable.”
