Cubiq Foods will use the investment to accelerate the production of omega-3s, as well as develop new products such as ‘vegan smart fat’ – a product that replaces animal fat and saturated vegetable fat – and microO3, a new generation of microencapsulated omega-3s.


The company's other shareholders are private equity firm Moira Capital Partners, with 46 per cent, and the company’s founding partners – Raquel Revilla, and entrepreneurs Andrés Montefeltro and Jordi Bladé – with 19 per cent.


Blue Horizon Ventures invests in companies developing “disruptive technologies” in the food sector, especially in the plant-based and agri-tech industries.


Moira Capital Partners, which is led by chairman Javier Loizaga, invested €12 million in Cubiq Foods in 2018.


Blue Horizon Ventures was founded by Roger Lienhard. The company’s managing partners are Michael Kleindl and Bjoern Witte.
