On the show today we’re speaking to talking to a new sector that is ready to flourish. Qponics is based up in QLD working closely with the University of Queensland to develop another consumable protein and omega-3 alternative without smashing the ocean with fishing nets. From 1 hectare of shallow algae pools they’re harvesting 30,000kg. It’s got a little bit on wheat and barley where you need vast amounts of land to break even or supply enough to feed the world. It’s a great conversation talking with Graeme as he’s sooo passionate about what he is doing and wants to do. With solid backing, they’re well on their way to going to market. Can’t wait to try out the products made from the Qponics algae.
