Microalgae might be the first thing that comes to mind when considering nutrition but it offers an impressive range of minerals, protein, anti-oxidants and vitamins. However, you may think of an acrid or strong flavour that would steer you towards more traditional nutrition! Algenuity is a tech start up that has found a way to reduce the strong taste of microalgae and retain nutrition. Their partnership with Unilever demonstrates the power of pooling skills to shape consumer demand towards more sustainable living.
Note from the editor: Nutrition Connect aims to share examples of partnerships and collaborations that result in positive nutrition outcomes. We seek examples that objectively demonstrate the potential of public private engagement, in particularly those which are underpinned by sound methodology, including evaluation. However, Nutrition Connect and its funders do not endorse any specific company, government or partnership, and in all cases a single example may not reflect the institution’s overall impact on food and nutrition security. For more information, the Editorial approach sets out our policy for content management, including case studies. Any related queries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
