The Pontus mission is to provide the world with an environmentally-sustainable source of pure plant-based protein.


Who we are

We are a Vancouver, Canada based agritech company that licenses the expertise to build and operate aquaponics farms that specialize in the sustainable production of organic plant-based proteins. Our expertise includes a farming regimen that creates products that are much more than just protein because they also contain a wide spectrum of naturally occurring “nutrient dense” attributes. We will strive to meet or exceed every Health Canada and FDA set of requirements for the production of Organic Natural Health Products.

For those who value what they feed their bodies, and what we feed the earth, we provide a healthy and responsible solution.
