Burcon is committed to putting people and planet first by developing plant-based food technologies that offer a sustainable way to feed the world.
Burcon’s proprietary protein extraction and purification technologies use no harsh chemicals, emit no noxious odours and consume significantly less energy than animal protein production. Our technologies are environmentally friendly and clean, using renewable plant-based sources as input material and extracting nutritionally valuable plant-based products for human consumption.
Plant-based protein production offers consumers a protein source that is both good for health and good for the planet. Compared to animal protein production, plant-based proteins are environmentally friendly and offer a significantly lower carbon footprint.
