Former Tyson Foods boss, Richard Bond, has joined the board of directors of Nutrinsic, a US firm involved in the upcycling of unused nutrients from wastewater for feed uses.

Bond, who also served as president and COO of Tyson Foods, reckons the potential for the Colarado based company’s technology is “enormous”.

CEO of Nutrinsic, Leo Gingras, told this publication previously it is getting ready to roll out its animal nutrition product, ProFloc, which is derived by a patented process involving the leveraging of unused nutrients from food and beverage facility wastewater, and is said to contain 63% protein.

“What the manufacturers call wastewater, we term substrate, as our technology allows us to produce a high quality single cell protein from potable water containing food and beverage nutrients. 

Our process is based on the fact that bacterial cells, under our environmental conditions, produce a large amount of protein with a balanced amino acid profile. In addition, they contain an array of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional components,”​ said Gingras, who added that food industry experience of Bond will be invaluable for Nutrinsic's future NPD work.
