CuanTec works in harmony with natural resources to reduce food waste and plastic pollution.
We are a biotechnology company that understands value can be found in waste. We actually prefer to use the term “by-products” – what is waste to one industry can be the starting point for another (see Turning Trash into Treasure).
We use by-products from the food industry (specifically the inedible parts of shellfish) to create new materials and products of interest to the food, pharmaceutical and medical sectors.Through the links below you can find out more about our team, our solutions and how we work with our partners to achieve our goals.
