Beth is the founder and CEO of Trophic, a company developing transformative technologies to unlock the potential of seaweed as a sustainable and global source of plant-based food products at large scale and low cost.
Beth started working in technology development as a research director for Bio Architecture Lab, a seaweed biofuels company. Her experience there provided the impetus to found Trophic in 2017. Supported by an ambitious Department of Energy research program (MARINER) Trophic is partnered with experts in robotics and aquaculture engineering to develop advanced, deep water seaweed farming systems 10 km off the coast of New Hampshire.
On the West Coast, and with the recent support of the Good Food Institute, Trophic’s R&D team in Berkeley, California aims to employ the wide scope and diversity of biochemical resources in seaweeds to develop a new class of plant-based proteins from the ocean.
