Calysseo, a joint venture (JV) between Calysta and Adisseo, will develop and produce Calysta's SCP aquafeed ingredients, branded FeedKind, exclusively for Asian markets. The JV also plans to construct a FeedKind production facility in China that will come online in 2022 and initially produce 20,000 MT of FeedKind protein per year. The facility's full-scale capacity is projected to be 100,000 MT per year. This news has two major takeaways: 1) Feed developers are displaying commitment to the growth of alternative protein industries, and 2) SCP production will quickly grow to support major aquaculture markets. Clients should look for opportunities to engage with SCP, as production will become commercially relevant in the near term.
