Upon joining the 100+ accelerator program sponsored by brewing giant AB Inbev and home consumables emporium Unilever, Robert Luo (founder of Mi Terro) saw the opportunity to simultaneously solve the plastics problem for home consumables as well as breweries' tons of spent grain.
Luo started the company back in 2018, inspired by visiting his uncle’s dairy farm in China. Mi Terro takes agricultural waste and processes it into proteins that can be used as a plastic replacement, fed as food to animals and more. Mi Terro’s process includes two steps: first, extracting polymers from the agricultural waste, then modifying them by grafting.
Astanor is the lead investor in Mi Terro’s $1.5 million round, which valued the company at $10 million.
