Other Media | The Fish Site: Singaporean insect-for-aquafeed firm raises $1.6 million

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Insect technology company Protenga has raised US $1.6 million from Roslin Technologies and Seeds Capital.

The company is looking to use black soldier fly to convert food waste into protein for the growing aquaculture and pet food markets. The investment allows Protenga to ramp up production of its insect-based products, conduct cutting-edge genetic research, and take its decentralised Smart Insect Farm model, which transforms agricultural and food waste into valuable products, to waste owners around Asia.

According to Protenga, the world faces a 60 billion tonne protein shortage by 2030, and around one-third of all food is wasted. Currently, livestock, aquaculture and pets are fed mainly with fishmeal and cash crops like corn and soy.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Anesco: 'It is necessary to reduce the fiscal pressure on the stevedore companies'

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

"If we do not want to lose more competitiveness and traffic compared to other countries" it is necessary to reduce the tax burden on stevedore companies. This is considered by the Association of Stevedoring Companies and Port Employment Centers, Anesco, which has asked to review the type of encumbrance of the occupancy rate on the port public domain to the terminals as well as the activity rate, to be able to compete with other countries within the maritime market.

This week a meeting will be held in Santander between the heads of State Ports and port authorities to discuss the proposal for a new Strategic Framework for the Port System of General Interest. For Anesco it is an opportunity to advance in a new model "that supposes an impulse to be able to compete on equal terms in the international maritime market".
