During the last 50 years, the agri-food industry has experienced major changes to resolve the "impossible food equation": 2.3 billion mouths to feed in 1950, 7.3 billion in 2015 and 10 billion in 2050.
Practising traditional agriculture, as it was carried out by our great-grandparents, using all the land under cultivation we would not have been able to feed more than 350 million people. To respond to this problem many changes have had to intervene and food production became industrialized. Producing enough food for everyone is a challenge that is today relatively relieved.
However the changes made have had unwanted and unfortunately dramatic secondary effects.
Over the past 50 years a banana, for example, has lost 80% of its content in vitamin A. Even more frightening, today it takes 100 apples to have the nutritional equivalent of a single apple in 1950.
Vitamins are essential to life, and since our bodies do not have the ability to produce them, we must get them through our food.
Today, even with a balanced diet, it is no longer possible to obtain all the vitamins that our bodies need to live in good health.
It is a great opportunity for mankind to rethink our relationship with nutrition and an opportunity for a return to the fundamentals.
Imagine a world where everyone has access to all the nutrients they need, where life expectancy is rising again, where modern diseases are in decline, and where everyone has more daily organic energy to fully flourish.
This world is possible and it is available to you through micronutrition.
Micronutrition begins with the principle of prevention and that food is the main source of well-being and energy.
There are two complementary currents in biotechnology startups: "biotech chemistry" which create new molecules to treat pathologies and "Biotech Life Sciences" which observe and understand nature to put in place the perfect conditions for the development of the living.
At Bloomizon we belong to this second category, our goal is to understand the relationship between complex systems, namely, mankind and its nutrition.
We do not create any new molecule, we model your nutrinome (your own nutritional need) and give you the ability to bring to your body exactly the amount of nutrients it needs.
Today we are at a societal and technological turning point that allows us to design the human of tomorrow.
At Bloomizon we are convinced that humans will not only be improved technologically and mechanically, but also in an organic way.
Indeed, each great civilizational era has been driven by a food revolution:
