This week, ABO member TerraVia announced a joint development agreement with Nestle Purina targeting the companion animal market. TerraVia is a pioneer in the algae-based ingredients space, producing healthy oils and lipids, whole algae proteins, omega-3 based ingredients and other products. The agreement will be leveraging those products and product concepts in TerraVia’s development pipeline to develop the next generation of nutritious, sustainable pet foods that are, in the worlds of TerraVia CEO Jonathan Wolfson, “better for the planet and the pets that we all love.”
The partnership marks a major milestone in bringing algae-based ingredients into the mainstream and it builds on the success of TerraVia’s algae innovations in the culinary, specialty feed ingredient and personal care industries.
