WELCOME TO SCYFUP
Fuelling tomorrow's taste with today's waste
At SCYFUP we are passionate about creating innovative food products capable of changing the industry. Not only are we concerned about the high demand for protein on which our diet is based, but also about the waste of perishable foods. We want to completely reduce this waste through bioprocesses that allow us to convert it into healthy and delicious protein that you can eat and enjoy. Our commitment to your needs is the driving force behind our biotechnology startup. Our team of professionals is here to inspire you with their unique ideas and capabilities. Please contact us for more information.
SCYFUP was born in the Voices of Tomorrow Biotechnology Innovation Competition, as part of the GapSummit 2020. The team, leaded by Diana Mollocana (Ecuador) and Rasan Chandra (Malaysia-UK) aims to find a solution to the problem of world hunger, finding the generation of food waste as one of the main problems. There is a lot of food waste generated on the production line without even touching the consumers' plate, while many products go from the hangers to the dump because there is no way to sell them and they cannot be stored in food banks for a long time. This is how the idea of using these foodstreams as food for unknown friends came about: protein generating bacteria. Just as a beer is made from yeast and malt, our protein (called Single-Cell Protein) will be made from bacteria and food waste as raw material. By consuming it you will not only be protecting the environment and reducing the global food security crisis, but you will also be taking care of our most valuable resources today: water and soil, which are necessary for the production of conventional protein sources: beans, lentils and of course, meat from livestock.
WHAT DO WE DO?
At SCYFUP, we seek to produce the first single-cell protein from bacteria that you can enjoy on your plate, while helping companies and stores in the food industry to reduce the waste they generate in good food.
