Business Opportunities Food & Beverage


Nutrilees is working to create an affordable and sustainable food source that contains proteins, dietary fibres, and minerals out of industrial wine residue. This upcycled byproduct can be incorporated in a large variety of food applications; offers a neutral taste; and is non-allergenic, gluten-free, and vegan.

When I first came across this company on a global virtual conference for AgriFood Tech startups looking for venture capital, I realised this was perfect for the Australian market. It turns out that they knew that too. Arguably it’s better (not in my opinion because it has no-taste unlike delicious Vegemite) because Nutrilees produces a superfood from a by-product (lees) that becomes a powder, useful for fortifying foods with additional dietary fibre and protein. I can’t wait to see them venture in Australia and find their superfood on our shelves. (Good things take time, like wine, vegemite, and nutritional-lees.)
