NXW CEO Toby Lane explains, “Alongside our current headquarters at IndieBio SF in dogpatch, we’re excited to be joining MISTA Foods to showcase our affordable, high quality, and complete nutrition designed in New Zealand. We’re working with global partners in coalition to manufacture non-GMO nutrition from water that doesn’t compromise on deliciousness, function, and price. We’re finalizing our Marine Whey™ prototypes and planning to supply many tonnes over the coming year to prioritized coalition partners, and we’re having fun with the MISTA ecosystem testing various applications. Our Marine Whey™ behaves and functions just like high-quality dairy whey, with a much smaller environmental footprint and a price point at scale that allows us to feed millions of growing families across Africa, Asia Pacific, and the Americas. We’re eager to collaborate under the MISTA umbrella, testing and learning in partnership with experts worldwide.”
