NEOM, the trailblazing sustainable regional development in northwestern Saudi Arabia, is proud to introduce 'Topian,' the NEOM Food Company. Topian marks a paradigm shift in food production, distribution, and consumption, focusing on sustainability and innovation across five key pillars: climate-proof agriculture, regenerative aquaculture, novel foods, personalized nutrition, and sustainable food supply with ESG considerations.

Launched in collaboration with the Saudi Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA), Topian aligns seamlessly with Saudi Vision 2030. It stands at the forefront of the Kingdom's mission to achieve food security, combat climate change, and attain net-zero emissions by 2060.

As a collaborative hub for scientists, industry experts, and innovators, Topian sets a new standard in sustainable food production. Driven by purpose, Topian embraces the 'Art of More with Less,' ushering in a 'new era of food' to address challenges arising from population growth, evolving consumption patterns, climate change, and natural resource depletion.

Nadhmi Al-Nasr, CEO of NEOM, expressed enthusiasm, stating, "Topian reflects our commitment to positive, long-lasting transformation in Saudi Arabia and worldwide. We look forward to turning ambitious ideas into reality, supporting economic diversification, and contributing to Saudi Vision 2030."

Dr. Juan Carlos Motamayor, CEO of Topian, emphasized their alignment with NEOM's commitment to quality, food security, and sustainability. "Topian leads the food-security conversation, creating a resilient food supply in line with the Saudi Green Initiative and the UN Sustainable Development Goals," he said. "We aim not only to shape a transformative global food system but also to set a global benchmark by pioneering new technologies and innovative solutions."

Topian has forged strategic partnerships with institutions such as King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Tabuk University, Tabuk Fish Company, BlueNalu, Van der Hoeven Horticultural Projects, and Cargill. These collaborations aim to drive research and development, harnessing partners' expertise to pioneer sustainable approaches to food production.

Committed to NEOM CARE's partnership, Topian will focus on educational initiatives, promoting local sustainable gastronomy, and nurturing Saudi talent through training opportunities and chef camps.

Witness the dawn of a sustainable food revolution with Topian, where innovation meets a commitment to a secure, sustainable, and prosperous global future.
