Comet Bio joins 100+ Accelerator to pilot sustainable ingredient tech

Comet Bio has developed a novel process to extract nutrition from food system waste, producing Arrabina prebiotic dietary fibre from upcycled crop leftovers

Ingredient manufacturer Comet Bio has been selected by Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) to join its 100+ Accelerator to pilot technology on brewers’ grain.

Through the 100+ Accelerator, AB InBev partners with companies who can deliver breakthrough advancements in sustainability. The 100+ Accelerator builds off of AB InBev’s 2025 Sustainability Goals, with six challenges around smart agriculture, water stewardship, circular economy and climate action.

Comet Bio has developed a novel process to extract nutrition from food system waste. It produces healthy ingredients such as Arrabina prebiotic dietary fibre from upcycled crop leftovers. Its technology integrates seamlessly with traditional food production systems, making it a truly sustainable process.

“We received over 1200 submissions from around the globe across all six challenges. After a rigorous review, 17 start-ups have been selected to join the second 100+ Accelerator cohort,” said Maisie Devine, Global Director of Sustainability Investments & Accelerator. “The future starts today by collaborating with visionary companies like Comet Bio.”

The selected 17 applicants will receive support, mentors and funds so the company can incubate, experiment and amplify their solutions at scale.

“We are excited to partner with AB InBev to pilot their saved grains in our process. AB InBev’s Waste to Wellbeing Challenge aligns perfectly with Comet’s core capability of extracting nutrition from food system waste,” said Richard Troyer, CEO of Comet Bio.
