Triton Algae Innovations, a San Diego-based early-stage company that is introducing a healthy, nutritious green algae into the food market, was recently honored with the 2018 Sustainable Seafood award, as part of the 10th annual BlueTech summit conference hosted by The Maritime Alliance (TMA). The TMA award was presented jointly to Triton and the InterContinental Hotel, to honor their collaborative efforts to promote sustainable algae for food. InterContinental executive chef Paul McCabe worked with Triton to create a full algae-based lunch menu for conference attendees.

In accepting the sustainability award for Triton, Dave Schroeder, Director of Corporate & Regulatory Affairs, said that Triton is excited to be introducing its algae into the market as a new, all-natural and non-GM source of protein, and noted that it can also play a role in addressing a looming global protein shortfall.

“Our algae are rich in protein, vitamin A, iron and essential amino acids,” said Mr. Schroeder. “The market is going to need this and other new sources of protein to help address the rising global demand for food, and the current inability to meet that demand, as we barrel toward 10 billion people on this planet by 2050.”

As Triton’s algae enters the market, the company is thrilled to be collaborating with culinary experts like Chef Paul McCabe, who are both highly skilled and passionate about incorporating innovative and nutritious ingredients into foods. Responding to consumer demand for options that are both delicious and sustainable provides an exciting window into the future of food.

Xun Wang, President and CEO of Triton, said that events such as BlueTech Week and the algae-themed lunch are critical to illustrating to consumers, and to industry, how readily this new and healthy ingredient can be incorporated into foods people are already familiar with.

“We are currently in discussion with several large food companies who are interested in using our algae as an ingredient in existing or new food products,” said Dr. Wang. “There is clearly a wide range of practical applications for our algae in foods, so for these companies to actually see how the visionary chefs we’ve worked with, like Paul McCabe at the InterContinental’s Vistal and Brian Malarkey at Herb & Wood, can turn it into truly amazing dishes and desserts that diners clamor for, is the best proof positive I think there could be, and we are very grateful for these collaborations.”

Dr. Wang will be giving a presentation later this month at the influential Agri-Food Tech conference in Singapore, where Triton will also be showcasing new prototype samples of foods made with its algae, including noodles, cookies, and protein-dense energy bars.
