NapiFeryn BioTech developed and patented technology to obtain food grade proteins from oilseeds. Our primary focus is rapeseed, namely the material left over after pressing oil from rapeseed. The rapeseed proteins generated in our technology have unique functional properties which make them an ideal food ingredient. Technology has been proven on pilot scale – we generate pre-commercial samples that we offer to food producers. The technology package will be commercialized through licensing agreements.
We are the proud member of the EIT Food RisingFoodStars club
The origin of the company’s name, NapiFeryn BioTech (NFB in short), is a combination of two names of proteins that are obtained from rapeseed: napin and cruciferin. The idea to set up a company dealing with extraction of vegetable proteins, rapeseed being the first one to try, emerged in 2013. It was then that two biotechnologists, Magdalena Kozłowska and Piotr Wnukowski met each other while working for an international pharma corporation in the Netherlands. The founders decided to set up their business in Poland. NapiFeryn BioTech was thus established in 2014, with its operations now located at Bionanopark, a science and technology park in the city of Łódź.
To improve life quality using technology to produce natural and functional plant derived proteins.
NapiFeryn BioTech as a global technological leader in production of natural functional plant derived protein.
The objective assumed by the company is to see at least 5% of the global rapeseed production processed to natural functional protein products with NapiFeryn BioTech technology in the timespan of ten years after first commercial facility is operational.
The first year of operations was financed from the founder’s own resources and the company obtained EU funds in the subsequent years. It also benefits from the support of two private investors.
NapiFeryn BioTech is located in Łódź, at Bionanopark – a science and technology park. The company has a lab equipped with devices for testing the production process at a laboratory scale. The infrastructure allows us to analyse process samples and the final product, which are protein isolates, in view of their chemical composition and functional properties.
