Embion participates in Swiss Presidential visit to Japan to promote bilateral innovation with focus on sustainable technologies.

Embion was part of a high-profile delegation to Osaka City as part of the ground-breaking ceremony of the new Swiss Consulate, the 6th key location for the Swissnex network.

CEO Georgios Savoglidis was invited to join the President of Switzerland, Mr Ignazio Cassis, the Swiss Consul, Dr. Felix Moesner and the vice governor of Osaka City, Mr Takahashi, at the ceremony which took place in April in conjunction with three other Swiss tech start-ups. During the event Mr Takahashi mentioned the importance of start-ups and innovation technology in driving greater global sustainability during industrial production.

“The event offered Embion the opportunity to showcase the benefits of our innovative biomass processing platform to industry leaders, academics, the public and selected key stakeholders in the region. We are also extremely excited to be chosen as one of the very first participants to the Innosuisse Internationalization Camp held in Japan to further optimise our market entry and connect with high quality partners, not only in the city of Osaka, but all over Japan. We look forward to work together towards future-proofing food production locally to enable positive impact for humankind and the planet at a global scale” Savoglidis enthused.

Embion initiated a partnership with Japanese-based brewers Asahi Group two years ago that leverages breakthrough technology to create new products from brewing by-products such as brewers spent grains. This follows the registration of Embion’s first super-extract called Prembion®, which supports the antibiotic-free growing of production animals by upcycling grain byproducts generated through the beer brewing process.

“We look forward to working with more Japanese partners to bring together our deep skills in business and technology strategy, product ideation, technology development, and deployment. The potential of our collaboration is as impactful as our technologies,” concluded Savoglidis.


Future food and supply security demands the use of localized resources while exploring the most advanced fundamental technologies available.
