Go plant-based

Embrace the next mega trend: plant-based proteins

How do you go about formulating meat alternatives that feel and taste like real meat? What do you need to consider when working on dairy alternatives or protein enrichment in consumers’ all time favorites such as instant noodles?

Consumers are continuously on the look-out for alternative sources of protein driven by health, sustainability and concern for animal welfare. Powering your products with plant-based protein can build greater consumer appeal and drive product differentiation.

For example, you can create meat alternatives with similar textures to real meat, reformulate your most successful brands with protein levels that allow 'high protein' or 'source of protein' claims. Moreover, create protein-rich meals with satisfying textures and health appeal whilst addressing the desire for more sustainable products.

Our cutting-edge solutions and tested expertise can help you stay ahead of trends. We’re in it with you to help you move forward.
