Partnering with another Dutch company, Synalgae, Lgem has grand plans. It's scaling up systems, making protein-rich algae accessible on a larger scale. What's more, their journey has seen remarkable growth, from a small team to a thriving 20-strong crew, thanks in part to recent investments.

What is more wonderful is the product of Lgem's algae process systems has already been tested in a highly nutritious burger with what's reported as 'very tasty ' outcome.
