About Air Protein
Air Protein, founded in 2019, is a pioneer in making air-based protein that requires no agriculture or farmland. Our first Air Farm facility, located in San Leandro, CA, is a prototype for the protein farm of the future. The state-of-the-art facility demonstrates the making of protein and other ingredients using air, water and energy as inputs. Air Protein makes protein ingredients that are rich in vitamins and minerals, flavor proteins, color proteins, and functional proteins that can deliver on a range of texture applications. The dramatic difference between Air Protein’s landless agriculture platform and all other ways of making protein is that others depend on land and/or an agricultural supply chain for feedstocks. This improves both the competitiveness and stability of production costs as it enables protein production without traditional supply chain risks (climate, geopolitical, etc.). At Air Protein, our mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to rainforest-friendly food to sustainably feed the future. (
