(Deep Tech – 2)

Koralo creates natural, delicious, and nutritious plant-based seafood for seafood lovers. Seafood is enjoying strong growth due to its popularity as a healthy alternative to meat. However, supply cannot keep up with demand due to overfishing and aquaculture’s inability to close the gap. Mimicking nature, the startup’s unique, patent-pending co-fermentation replicates the taste and nutrition of seafood so that you can use it in all your favorite dishes. Koralo replaces fish with fermentation, using microalgae as a feedstock to create a natural seafood alternative.
