ADM to expand European production of non-GMO protein concentrate
ADM is expanding the production of non-GMO soy protein concentrate at its facility in Europoort, Netherlands to meet the growing demand for high quality plant-based proteins in the European market.
The Europoort facility recently started producing non-GMO soy protein concentrate, which is available as a powder and will be suitable for all types of food applications.
ADM said it can now not only provide customers with soy protein as a standalone ingredient but can also help incorporate it into tailored nutrition solutions to meet market and consumer trends.
George Perujo, product management EMEAI, ADM Human Nutrition said the expansion means ADM is a one-stop shop to help customers meet growing market demand as well as help food makers satisfy consumers unwilling to compromise on taste.
Perujo said: “With more consumers adopting a flexitarian diet, the need for plant-based solutions continues to grow in Europe. And besides being conscious about sourcing, Europeans are more likely to pay attention to the non-GMO status of their ingredients, so European origination and production was an important factor when we were considering options for this expansion. The Europoort facility has long-standing technological capabilities as well as a proven track record in the production of soy protein concentrate, so it was the ideal choice for this expansion.”
