StartLife, Kadans Science Partner and Wageningen Campus are excited to welcome FUMI Ingredients to the startup community located in Plus Ultra II, the newest multi-tenant building on Wageningen Campus. FUMI Ingredient is moving into one of the  office spaces dedicated to agrifoodtech startups.

Established in 2019, with the support of StartLife, FUMI Ingredients is an innovative foodtech start-up that focuses on alternative proteins that can replace proteins coming from chicken eggs. Their vegan proteins have a low CO2 footprint and are easy to produce without any expensive machines or chemicals. This makes the cost of production competitive with egg proteins. FUMI Ingredients protein also contains similar properties to egg proteins and contain a balanced, essential amino acid profile.

Agrifood ecosystem

FUMI Ingredients chose Plus Ultra II for their new office because of its dynamic ecosystem, which allows the company to connect with other startups, scale-ups as well as nearby located corporates and research institutes. According to its co-founders, Corjan van den Berg (left on photo) and Edgar Suarez Garcia (right on photo), the ability to rent a small office on campus, close to their laboratory, is also a huge advantage.

“Wageningen Campus is just in many ways the most logical place for us to be situated.”
