PUTTING PEOPLE

AND PLANET FIRST

SUSTAINABILITY

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-based protein production, plant-based proteins are environmentally friendly and offer a significantly lower carbon footprint.

In fact, it takes:

6x

Less water to produce protein
from pulses vs beef

49x

Less land to produce protein
from pulses vs beef

100x

Less greenhouse gases to produce protein
from pulses vs beef
