About my Start-up
Improved quality pet food with a minimal carbon footprint.
Natural food for dogs and cats. A tasty and complete diet with insect protein, hypoallergenic and without cereals (grain and gluten free). With a local production, with hardly any water consumption and without animal abuse.
Why your idea is a “winner"?:
Insect farming companies are normally staffed by entomologists and scientific researchers.
Insect pet food brands are typically staffed by product designers and marketing experts.
ProtECO Food & Feed team has a unique mix of entomologists, veterinarians, senior sales and marketing managers, product designers, and PhD data strategists who will enable the company to implement a business model based on a very short supply chain. and a proximity-based logistics system.
What has been done so far (GINQO) is only the first step of the ProtECO journey.
What is your current or intended business/revenue model?:
B2C: online sales
B2B2C: specialized channel (veterinary clinics and pet shops)
Do you have any Patent or IP registered (related to the solution that you are looking for an investment)?:
GINQO is a registered trademark owned by ProtEco Food & Feed.
It is valid throughout the territory of the European Union for the categories of the Nice classification: 5, 28, 29, 30, 31 and 32
Has your technology already been implemented in any field/sector?:
Although there are already some successful insect farming companies across Europe, an industry-recognized common standard production model is still missing (but slowly being defined).
Which market and customer need(s)/problem(s) is (are) your products(s)/service(s) going to solve?:
Novel proteins are the only real alternative to hydrolysed proteins for dogs/cats with food allergies.
Hydrolysis is, by far, the feed production most expensive process by both economic (€) and resource consumption point of view.
Each of the areas of our lives offers us the possibility of participating in making a better world. How we feed our dogs and cats also affects the amount of CO2 we emit, ultimately our carbon footprint. Feeding your dogs and cats with Ginqo offers the unique opportunity of solving your dog/cat food allergy by showing at the same time your commitment and responsibility to the planet.
