SAN FRANCISCO, US: TerraVia Holdings Inc (TVIA) said that Bon Appetit Management Company has adopted its Thrive Culinary Algae Oil as a preferred oil, chosen for its unique combination of nutrition, culinary and sustainability benefits that align with the company’s kitchen principles.

Bon Appetit is a pioneer in environmentally and socially responsible practices. The company operates more than 650 cafes in 33 states for corporations, universities, and speciality venues, including Google, University of Pennsylvania, and the Getty Center.

Thrive Algae Oil is available as a premium cooking oil in grocery stores and online through Amazon. The retail oil contains 75 percent less saturated fat and 25 percent more monounsaturated fat than olive oil. The foodservice offering has been expanded to meet the demanding needs of today’s chefs, including a canola blend for high volume uses such as deep frying, created to deliver benefits in sustainability and nutrition while hitting the right economics for high volume outlets.

“We love Thrive Algae Oil and have been testing it for a year now. Using Thrive Algae Oil, our chefs can create flavorful, nutritious meals, that are also healthy for the planet. We are excited to more broadly adopt this truly innovative, game-changing oil across Bon Appetit,” said Fedele Bauccio, Founder and CEO of Bon Appetit.

“The leadership Bon Appetit has shown its commitment to nutrition and sustainability is unparalleled. They lead by example in the care they put into the food they serve to their guests every day. Their deep commitment directly aligns with TerraVia’s mission to use algae, the mother of all plants to deliver the world’s healthiest oils and ingredients with the lowest impact on our planet’s scarce resources,” added Apu Mody, CEO of TerraVia.
