Thai Union and Calysta formed a joint collaboration in 2018 to trial FeedKind as a replacement for 10% of Thai Union's shrimp feed. From the project efforts, the first FeedKind-fed shrimp appeared at the 2019 Seafood Expo Global, exhibiting another successful shrimp feeding trial for Calysta and a vote of confidence in single-cell protein as an aquaculture feed ingredient.
