KaTech invests in meat and fish alternatives

KaTech Ingredient Solutions is celebrating the opening of its meat and fish alternative centre. The company has invested in new machinery that enables its technical teams to replicate industrial processes and develop textural ingredient solutions for meat and fish alternative products. Adding to KaTech’s portfolio of meat and fish alternatives, the investment follows the growing demand of food manufacturers for new product developments in this area.

After several years of development of plant-based/vegan products for the food industry and a market that is expected to continue to grow in the future, KaTech has decided to invest in its already existing operating pilot plant in Lübeck, Germany. The newly acquired machinery is particularly relevant for the production of meat and fish alternatives. The investment supports the company’s strategy to continue to focus on plant-based products in the future.  

“So far, the equipment in our technical centre has been extensively used to provide our customers with the right product developments. However, with an ever-increasing demand for plant-based product development and a market that is expected to grow further in the future, it was time to invest. We are pleased that this investment will enable us to support our customers even better in the production of plant-based textural ingredient solutions for their individual alternative meat and fish products at a high quality that they can bring quickly and effectively to market”, said Alexander Maeße, head of technical at KaTech.
