New opportunity supports Canada as a Global Leader in Plant Protein

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pontus Water Lentils announced today the launch of their equity crowdfunding campaign to raise $1,250,000 to build their first Production Farm in Delta, B.C. Pontus has a Test Farm in Victoria, B.C., that has demonstrated the growth of water lentils within a proprietary automated aquaponics system.

Canada has a stated aim to be a global leader in plant protein, building on the country’s agricultural expertise. 2019 was the year when alternative eating became mainstream, and many North Americans sought meat alternatives. The plant-based protein market is estimated to be USD 18.5 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at CAGR of 14.0% from 2019, to reach a value of USD 40.6 billion by 2025 (source Research and Markets, 2019).

Pontus’ proprietary blend of water lentils, with no additives is processed into a fine powder called Pontus Protein Power+™. The powder is 42% protein plus it is gluten-free, vegan and allergen safe, high in antioxidants, dietary fibre, essential nutrients and minerals including Potassium, Iron, Calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Omega 3/6 Fatty Acids, Riboflavin and Foliate. It is a nutrient-dense ingredient that can enhance functional foods and beverages, or it can stand alone as a protein supplement.

“Our made in Canada solution more than meets the need for a sustainable, non-GMO plant-based protein. Our aquaponics farming practice, which includes the proprietary CEVAS™ technology, allows us to build our farms virtually anywhere on the planet. We harvest a minimum of every 24 hours using 95% less water, no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or additives and we do all of this with a near zero carbon footprint. This not a game changer. It’s a new game. And that’s why at Pontus we can confidently say we are Reinventing Agriculture.”-Connor Yuen, CEO, Pontus Water Lentils

We make pure plant-based organic protein powder sourced from nutritious water lentils, farm-grown right here in Vancouver, BC. Not only is Pontus Protein Power+™ non-GMO, but it’s also gluten-free, and allergen safe. It’s jam-packed full of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and ALL the essential amino acids. We’re not talking about your average lentil, we’re talking about water lentils, a crop that can be harvested every 24 hours, in an indoor aquaponic farm that uses 95% less water than traditional agriculture, using our proprietary CEVAS™ technology and has a near zero carbon footprint. For those who value what they feed their bodies, and what we feed the earth the solution is Pontus. Reinventing Agriculture.

It’s Easy Being Green

” The global functional foods market size was estimated at USD 161.49 billion in 2018. The global functional foods market size is projected to reach USD 275.77 billion by 2025? It is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. The major motive of incorporating the aforementioned additives in the food and beverage industry is to increase the nutritional content in food items.”

Referring to PONTUS PROTEIN POWER+ as a nutritional game-changer is not an exaggeration.

At Pontus Water Lentils we saw the potential of the power of Water Lentils as a complete protein. Vegetarians who don’t  eat meat and older people who may have trouble absorbing vitamins have both been found to be protein and vitamin deficient. These deficiencies can result in anemia, fatigue, muscle weakness, intestinal problems, nerve damage and mood disturbances.

You Say Vegetarian, I Say Omnivore?

So seniors and vegetarians, as well as those with digestive issues, listen up. Not to mention, omnivores who need to upgrade their nutrition organically with a non-GMO product.

In India, 38 percent of the population is vegetarian. Israel, Taiwan, Austria, Italy have 10% or more of their population who claim to be vegetarians. Rising quickly are the conscious and/or religious choices for turning away from meat, dairy, fowl for plant -based nutritional components.

Utilizing pure, organic supplements for healthier living also augments the fight against climate change. The same motivation underlies the growth of the functional foods market.

At Pontus, we are as passionate about the process as we are about the final product. Through our CEVAS system, we used a closed-loop process working with fish as the providers of the nutrition of the plants. This approach is the essence of Aquaponics. We use Rainbow Trout, which are raised to market size and sold. The revenue for these organic components will be sold at premium prices and will represent roughly 10% of gross revenues.

Harvest, Dehydrate, Refine, Sell, Repeat.

Our PONTUS PROTEIN POWER+ is not a one-trick pony, nor a tongue twister. 100 percent of the plant is refined to a fine, dare I say, gorgeous jade green powder. It is extremely high in antioxidants, dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins including Potassium, Iron, Calcium, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Omega Fatty Acids, Riboflavin, and Folate. Vegetarian, gluten-free, and non-GMO. I am very confident that PONTUS PROTEIN POWER+ will exceed Health Canada Manufacturing Guidance for approval of Natural and non-prescription products.

For those looking to supplement their diets with a form of plant-based protein , the current product somewhat close to PONTUS PROTEIN POWER+ is soy protein, which can taste pretty nasty, is missing a lot of nutrients and lacks comparable water solubility. The actual Soy protein isolate has to be produced through a chemical process that can produce questionable ingredients like aluminum and hexane. The USDA states that likely 90% of Soy Protein is genetically modified. The majority of whey type protein powders are developed from dairy products.

I can’t give away any trade secrets, but the tease is almost as good. We combined five of literally 1000’s of strains of Water Lentils. One was protein-rich, one was a hyper-accumulator and the final three brought mad nutrients to the product.

The organic fish we ’employ’ are sourced from breeders we trust and know well. Before putting in the fish, they are quarantined from 2 days to 2 weeks to ensure no sickness or nasty microbes find their way into the CEVAS system. In addition, to being an integral part of our CEVAS system the fish almost immediately perform as an early warning system should the process have any bacterial issues.

The CEVAS process flow is proprietary as is the ‘secret sauce’ of nutrients, all organic. We are constantly exploring other strains that will further enhance or positively impact the Aquaponic m?lange. You can read more about it here, with an article from our CTO.

Is Pontus a Technology or Agriculture Company?

Both, actually!

Not long ago, nor very far away, my Company, Vancouver-based Green Oasis Foods developed the CEVAS (Closed Environment Vertical Aquaponics System); arguably the most advanced soil less organic growth system developed to date. Our main consideration was to build a closed-loop Aquaponics system that ensured there was no way for contaminants to enter the growth chain. The resulting efficiency and product quality, as a result, are quite startling, almost like having a built-in anti-malware program for crop growth.

Good Things Come in Threes

All ponic grow systems have unique benefits and challenges. Still all markedly increase yields and, to varying degrees, lowers the use of power and water. Each also can be set up to be custom complementary systems. Green Oasis? CEVAS? is a hybrid aquaponics system currently being used by Green Oasis and Pontus Protien Ltd, the latter owning an exclusive worldwide license to the technology.

Full disclosure, I am also CTO of Pontus Protein Ltd. Ultimately, through an agreement with Amwolf, Pontus plans to obtain a public listing in approximately Q2/2020.

Before that, we plan to crowdfund through FrontFundr for $1.5 million and a like amount in a sponsored Private Placement. We plan to use the initial funds to build a 10,000 square foot grow facility. It might be useful to define the main types of soil-less grow systems.

Lets Translate the Main Types of Ponics

Aquaponics: A symbiotic relationship with the system; housing fish producing waste to provide crop nutrients

Hydroponics: Continuous water system, but nutrients are added to the growth media that replaces soil

Aeroponics: is a variation of hydroponics, but instead of using a grow bed filled with media, the plants are instead suspended, with roots facing a sprinkler system connected to the main nutrient reservoir.

The difference between a standard Aquaponics system and CEVAS is analogous to a Prius versus a Tesla, with the latter being much more efficient with less impact on the environment. We decided it made sense to start with Water Lentils as the first crop as its growth characteristics and high market price are very attractive.

We are Reinventing Agriculture?

I sincerely believe that our system brings a fundamental and profound change to growing soil-less crops successfully and in greater numbers than other methods. Here are some key points:

CEVAS?

  • A combination of the best of both Hydro- and Aquaponics
  • Completely closed-loop system customized by Green Oasis
  • Utilizes state of the art, data-driven analytics
  • Optimize machine learning and artificial intelligence to produce superior and consistent crops
  • Uses 5% of the water of traditional agriculture
  • CO2 captured and recycled
  • Symbiotic air exchange
  • Bio Security systems to remove all possible contaminants from any human interaction
  • Solids filtration
  • Biodigestion; fish waste turned into plant nutrient through aerobic digestion

Pontus, Protein Power+, Water Lentils, and a Surprise Vitamin Discovery (Pay Close Attention)

The relevance of Water Lentils? Water Lentils are amazing source of nutrition, vitamins and their growth profile is particularly exciting.

To wax global about feel good investing, the ramifications of nourishment derived from Water Lentils for humanity as a whole are staggering. Our flagship product, Pontus Protein Power+, also has 42.1% (11 grams) of protein per 25grams of powder. Whether used in a smoothie or, in the communal soup of a village in the third world, the potential is palpable.

We harvest our Water Lentils every 24 hours as it grows that quickly. The plants are dehydrated and ground into a fine powder. The Rainbow Trout used as the nutrient delivery vehicle in CEVAS will be sold as high-quality organic fish for premium market prices.

I believe, as the holder of a global exclusive license for CEVAS, a significant revenue stream could well be generated with negotiated sub-licenses. The terms do not restrict Pontus to Water Lentils, although the potential for this initial Superfood appears pretty spectacular.

I look forward to sharing our growth with you either as a contributor on FrontFundr or as a shareholder once Pontus becomes publicly traded. Join our mailing list to be notified of our latest updates. Now that our fundraising campaign is live, you can invest directly online.
