Oberon has developed a sustainable, single-cell, protein-meal product, which it plans to release by the second quarter of next year.
The Fitzsimons company recently completed a second round of financing to fund a permanent manufacturing operation at a major brewery in Ohio.
“We’ve been a small company focused on developing our technology … most revenues we’ve brought in have been related to our financing,” said co-founder Seth Terry.
Oberon’s product is a fish meal replacement, primarily for the aquaculture industry. The meal is made from by-products in the wastewater treatment process used by food and beverage manufacturers, which led Oberon to focus on breweries for its initial production.
Oberon also plans to expand within the Fitzsimons Life Science District.
“Fitzsimons is very attractive because we’ve been able to buy by the glass as well as take advantage of some of the broader resources on-site,” said Terry, adding that the district creates a collaborative environment for the company’s growing team.
“Fitzsimons has combined lab and office space … and it wasn’t really the easiest thing to find, and that led us to consider Fitzsimons and see that as a great option. Culturally, it’s important when we can keep our people together.”
