Dedicated to a sustainable future

Pioneering a sustainable future in global food systems

At Understory, our mission extends beyond providing high-quality protein. We are acutely aware of
the significant environmental impact of the food industry, which accounts for approximately one-
third of global carbon emissions. In response to this challenge, we are dedicated to reducing our
industrial footprint while simultaneously strengthening our positive handprint on the planet.

Our commitment involves strategically addressing several United Nations sustainability goals through
our operations. We are not just aiming for improvement but for transformation, intending to
become net zero by 2050. This ambition underpins our efforts to mitigate the environmental impact
of the food industry and lead by example in the journey towards a more sustainable future.

The benefit of upcycling innovation

Our protein ingredient is distinguished by its inventive approach to utilizing raw materials, transforming a biomass typically unsuitable for human consumption into valuable nutrition. This method significantly reduces waste and conserves resources. Additionally, the water footprint of our ingredient is remarkably lower, up to 100 times smaller than conventional protein sources. Understory protein is sourced from the pristine waters of Antarctica, which significantly reduces land usage, emphasizing our positive sustainability impact.
