OSY Group, led by CEO Marc Braterman, has clinched a £750,000 investment to further develop and distribute its groundbreaking Xtend technology. Xtend represents a significant innovation in antimicrobial packaging coatings aimed at extending the shelf life of food products, thereby mitigating global food waste and its environmental impact. This investment will facilitate the technology’s rollout across the UK and beyond, as well as support team expansion at the Manchester International Office Centre. Notably, this round of funding saw contributions from three new investors and continuity from a previous supporter, building on an earlier round of £250,000 and a research grant from Innovate UK. With promising results from independent trials and potential for broad application across packaging types, Xtend positions OSY Group at the forefront of sustainability solutions in the food sector.
