About my Start-up

“We solve the Taste and Healthiness of plant-based fish alternatives for Flexitarian Foodies by doing a plant-based sashimi through molecular gastronomy approach.”
Company Summary
Bluana’s mission is to contribute to the future of the Oceans by providing a Tasty and Healthy plant-based alternative to Ocean fish. Taking natural ingredients such as edamame beans, tempeh, dehydrated tomatoes, and shitake mushrooms, we mix them, and using algae extracts, we bind them into a product such as fish meat, a VEGAN SASHIMI. With all the benefits of fish: Omega 3, vitamins B and D, and … no bones.
Our technology: the latest generation of HMMA.
