Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) has selected Comet Bio to pilot technology on brewers’ gain.

The company, along with 16 other start-ups, will join AB InBev’s 100+ Accelerator to help deliver advances in sustainability.

100+ Accelerator focuses on challenges such as smart agriculture, circular economy, climate action and water stewardship.

AB InBev Sustainability Investments & Accelerator global director Maisie Devine said: “We received over 1,200 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.

“The future starts today by collaborating with visionary companies like Comet Bio.”

The company produces healthy and sustainable ingredients, such as Arrabina prebiotic dietary fibre from upcycled crop leftovers. The process used by the company is sustainable.

Production and research facilities of Comet Bio are spread across the US, the UK and Italy.

All 17 selected companies will receive support, mentors and funds to advance their solutions at scale.

Some companies include Asarasi, Club Soda, Ecopackers, and more.

Comet Bio CEO Richard Troyer said: “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.”
