Prawns without the catch

Approved projects 08:26

Dr. Lukas Böcker and Dr. Severin Eder, ETH Zurich and Catchfree

Producing prawns from plants is a challenge – and not only because of their taste or texture, but above all because of their characteristic shape. The Catchfree start-up company led by Lukas Böcker and Severin Eder at ETH Zurich is now developing a multi-stage process to create prawns from vegetable protein mass. Their aim is to use the technique to produce other plant-based seafood one day.
