Pontus Water Lentils announced recently the launch of its equity crowdfunding campaign to raise $1,250,000 to build its 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.

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.

Pontus’ proprietary blend of water lentils, with no additives, is processed into a fine powder called Pontus Protein Power.
