For the well-being of present and future generations
The principal value that guides us is sustainability: we believe in social and economic development that respects nature and the planet as a whole, by means of a careful and not indiscriminate use of resources.
Our mission is to satisfy the needs of our age while guaranteeing the future of new generations.
While the population is constantly increasing, along with the general demand for food, resources are quickly depleting and diminishing, including those used in animal farming.
In Europe, in particular, there are not the agro-climatic conditions that allow the production of plant-based proteins to fully satisfy the demand. It is not only a question of lack of resources, it is also an environmental matter: the current production has already had disastrous effects on the planet and, since demand will inevitably continue to increase, it is our responsibility to use alternatives that have the least harmful impact on our environment.

Protei.co provides sustainable proteins that improve livestock performance and productivity: entomological or fermentation derived proteins (SCP), high-quality sustainable sources that meet the nutritional needs of livestock while reducing the harmful impact on the environment. For example, if in one acre of land, an average of 1,500 pounds of soy protein can be produced, in the same space, up to 2 million pounds of insect proteins can be obtained.
0 agricultural land used
Up to 98% less water used than traditional products
Up to 40% less CO2 emissions than traditional sources
Use of processes focused on recycling for less waste of resources
Reduced impact of global warming on world GDP
Safe protein supply even in cases of emergency
Protei.co is already having a positive impact, both directly and indirectly, on several SDGs (the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015).
Thanks to our constant collaboration with research centers and Universities, we can now offer to our customers in the agri-food sector the instruments to effectively counteract CO2 emissions deriving from the production cycle at a competitive price, strongly improving their life-cycle assessments (LCA).
