Our Partners

The CuanTec team has wide-ranging knowledge and expertise that they apply to the extraction of high-quality chitin from natural resources that would otherwise be thrown away.  They are innovative and inquisitive about how chitin and its derivative chitosan can be formulated into a number of different products that are of interest to the food and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in medicine.

We seek to work in partnership with businesses and organisations that:

  • share our goals of reducing food waste and plastic pollution.
  • work with a circular economy and zero waste mindset.
  • want to innovate in the food, pharmaceutical and medical sectors to improve existing or develop new solutions.
