“We see this additional divestment of our technology to Therapure as a major milestone for Upfront,” commented Michael Pålsson, CEO of Upfront. “It is yet another significant blue-stamp of our technology, driven by its value creation in the capture of high value proteins. We are now ready to focus 100% on our BioMine business which aims to valorize under-utilized side and waste streams from the food, feed and biofuel industries. There is a broad range of food and feed industries in the world with large volumes of side and waste streams containing valuable proteins. We are able to help these manufacturers get more value out of these streams, and at the same time we see a growing, global need for alternative protein sources to feed the world’s population.”
