YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ma3UlYWugug To mark World Refugee Day, which occurred on June 20th, organizations like Airbnb.org and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) continue to raise awareness about the ongoing needs of refugee populations around the world and connect them to free emergency stays. From refugees fleeing events in Afghanistan to people displaced by the war in Ukraine, Airbnb.org is proud to work with partners like IOM, as well as Airbnb.org Hosts and donors, to offer welcoming places to stay during unimaginable times of crisis. Kristen Berlacher, Director of Programs at Airbnb.org, and Amy Pope, Director General Elect of IOM, talked about this important collaboration. Since its founding in December 2020, Airbnb.org has worked with IOM and organizations around the world to connect nearly 200,000 refugees and asylum seekers with free, temporary stays, including: ○ 135,000+ refugees from Ukraine ○ 34,000+ refugees from Afghanistan During the media tour, topics that were discussed included: ● How the state of refugees and asylum seekers evolved in recent years and where there has been the greatest need. ● Why providing temporary housing is a key part of refugee relief and how temporary housing benefits both refugees and their local host communities over the long-term. ● How the partnership between Airbnb.org and IOM has been instrumental in addressing the temporary housing needs of refugees and asylum seekers internationally. ● How people can support ongoing refugee relief efforts by Airbnb.org and IOM. Humanitarian crises like those that forced people to flee events in Afghanistan and the war in Ukraine often capture the attention of the world and compel people and organizations to take action. Long after the headlines fade, however, the needs of those displaced by these events endure.

NextFerm Technologies announces a commercial manufacturing agreement for the production of ProteVin™, its vegan protein, with Kothari Fermentation and Biochem, a subcontractor in India

NextFerm Technologies Ltd.

In the first stage, the production setup will enable an annual production capacity of $4M in revenues The completion of the production setup is expected during the fourth quarter, 2023 (Yokneam Illit, July 5, 2023) – NextFerm Technologies Ltd. (TASE:NXFR), a food-tech company developing ProteVin™, a vegan, fermentation-based, non-GMO protein alternative and other innovative yeast-based nutrients, announced today that it has entered into a commercial manufacturing agreement with a subcontractor in India, Kothari Fermentation and Biochem, for the production of ProteVin™. The agreement relates only for production services and doesn’t include IP transfer to the subcontractor. The company's management has worked diligently to find a solution to establish a production setup that will be in line with its financial means, so that, in this stage, this agreement replaces the establishment of the manufacturing plant with the subcontractor in North Macedonia, and will allow the company to supply market demands with a lower investment than planned and with the ability to increase future capacity. In the first stage, the production setup will enable an annual production capacity of $4M in revenues. In addition to the production equipment that the company has purchased so far, the Company estimates that the necessary investment needed for the completion of the production setup and the purchase of the production equipment for the first stage will be approximately $2M. This investment will be financed from the company's own resources. The completion of the production setup is expected during the fourth quarter, 2023. The building in which the production facility is planned to be built already exists and has needed utilities, and most of the equipment needed to operate it has already been purchased by the company and/or is in the possession of the subcontractor and is available for the company’s use. Starting 2023, five food and dietary supplement companies in the USA and Europe have launched vegan products based on ProteVin, including Swanson, one of the leading and veteran nutritional supplement brands in the USA, Spacemilk and Mushroom Design. In the five products, the ProteVin™ brand is labeled on the packaging. The company has a wide and growing base of food and dietary supplement companies, including global companies, that are examining ProteVin for use in a variety of alternative products. In addition to ProteVin, the production facility in India will allow the company to also produce and market the by-product Yeast Extract, which is obtained in the production process of the protein. This product is an ingredient that enhances taste and flavor in the food industry. The company has developed a first generation of Yeast Extract based on a unique technology developed by the company (a yeast strain and unique processes) that contributes to the quality of the Yeast Extract products and the profitability of these products. The Yeast Extract market is estimated at approximately $1.9 Billion in global annual sales, with a growth of approximately 8.7% which is influenced, among others, by the growth of the alternative food market[1]. This is one of the most important and largest categories in the flavors market. Boaz Noy, Chief Executive Officer of NextFerm, said: "In past few months, we have focused on finding an efficient and flexible production alternative to the production facility that was planned to be established in North Macedonia, which will be in line with the company's capabilities and financial resources. The production setup that will be established in India will allow us to meet the growing demand for ProteVin, with a lower investment than planned with the ability to increase future capacity. ProteVin™ is the only alternative protein on the market today with a neutral taste and an animal-like nutritional value, and we believe it will become a leading solution in the global alternative protein industry. In addition, the company will be able to initiate the production and launch of Yeast Extract, which is a vegan food ingredient that enhances taste and flavor and with a high and growing demand in the food industry." About Kothari Fermentation and Biochem Kothari Fermentation and Biochem, traded on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE:KFBL.BO) is a manufacturer of baker’s yeast, Instant Yeast, Active & Inactive Dried Yeast, Cell walls, yeast extract, alcohol yeast and other yeast based products.

Obsesh Media

In a groundbreaking partnership, Our Saviour Lutheran young men’s basketball and New York Lightning Basketball have jointly introduced an inventive platform to leverage Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) for the benefit of their unified teams. This pioneering initiative, named "Protect the Nest", merges the strengths of these renowned entities from the NY Metro and national high school basketball circuit. Led by esteemed Head Coach Pete Wehye, the collaborative endeavor brings together the top-rated New York high school basketball program, the highest-rated Nike EYBL League team from New York, and the elite NY Metro grassroots AAU team, and aims to enhance the NIL potential for athletes and teams. The partnership also reinforces Our Saviour Lutheran and the New York Lightning’s commitment to fostering their athletes' development and recognition on an elite level, and signals a significant stride in promoting their players' personal brands while revolutionizing the sports landscape. Working hand in hand with Obsesh, the industry leader in NIL branding, sports marketing, and technology services, the inclusive NIL platform seeks to create opportunities for the alliance and its players through national and local sponsorships, talent endorsements, and various other marketing initiatives nationally. Players will also benefit from unparalleled resources for personal brand development and instruction, in addition to financial planning and contract education—vital for the evolving new sports era.
