Finnish mycoprotein feed company startup eniferBio will start to work with leading UK retailer Tesco and its supply chain partners after winning a pitching event held by the group.

EniferBio made the pitch at an event sponsored by Tesco and the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit.

EniferBio is developing a mycoprotein feed partly suitable for aquaculture supply chain that could serve as a high-protein alternative to soy protein concentrate.

Tesco has ambitious sustainability commitments and aims to only source deforestation and conversion-free soy by 2025.
