The Algae Factory is a start-up founded by Stefania Abbona and Pierluigi Santoro, two Italians that met during their studies at Wageningen University, important Dutch University in the food and agro business sector. They have a goal to be part of the solution for decreasing the gap between malnourished people and who instead spend billions of dollars in snacks. From one side, there is a starving world and from the other, millions of people who eat snacks containing palm oil and other not so healthy ingredients.
