Griffith Foods is excited to announce our new partnership with Protein Industries Canada (PIC), an industry-led, not-for-profit organization created to position Canada as a global source of high-quality plant protein and plant-based co-products.
Through this partnership, we will be collaborating with Persall Fine Foods and k2MILLING to research and develop plant-based protein ingredients, such as flours and texturized protein blends. These ingredients will be used by a variety of food processors across the value chain.
“This project truly exemplifies a strengthening of our agrifood ecosystem,” Protein Industries Canada CEO Bill Greuel said. “Together the consortium will develop ingredients that work for other companies wanting to enter the growing flexitarian market. They are contributing to Canada’s food and ingredient sector and bringing value to a wide array of companies—including meat processors, a group many don’t always associate with the plant-protein sector. As the demand for diverse protein options increases, it is an opportunity for innovative companies like these to become global leaders and set Canada apart in the protein market.”
As a product development partner with an active presence in over 30 countries, Griffith Foods will leverage our core capabilities, combined with the unique strengths and expertise of our partners, to improve plant-based protein ingredients and meet the growing demands of this evolving category.
“For the past century, Griffith Foods has been forefront in bringing food science discipline to the processed meat industry,” said Joachim Baur, Director of Product and Process Innovation at Griffith Foods. “By collaborating with our consortium partners and PIC, we look forward to advancing Canada’s plant-protein industry with innovative, functional ingredients. It is a project that encompasses our purpose driven strategy in the many ways in which We Blend Care and Creativity to Nourish the World.”
We look forward to scaling positive impact and advancing innovation within plant-based offerings across the food industry, together.
