“Our partnership with World Food Processing allows Roquette America to give the U.S. market a local supply of pea protein isolates,” said Dominique Taret, CEO of Roquette America. “We have seen a dramatic increase in consumer demand for our pea proteins due to their benefits, including cleaner labeling, elimination of common allergens, and high digestibility.”
According to Jerry Lorenzen, CEO of World Food Processing,“Food traceability is a growing concern of consumers. Our non-GMO and organic closed-loop, vertically integrated model allows us complete control from seed to plate.” He added, “Our partnership with Roquette increases the availability of pea protein for world-leading food companies and offers, to consumers, access to a high-quality plant-based protein backed by innovation and complete transparency.”
This partnership reinforces the strength of Roquette’s pea protein brand, Nutralys. Pea protein ingredients offer formulation and nutrition benefits in several applications, including baked goods, snacks, cereals, dairy foods, desserts, confections, savory foods, health and nutritional products, and pet foods.
