Nestle increases its footprint in plant-based protein with this collaboration

On Friday, food giant Nestle stated, it has decided to collaborate with Canadian plant-based food ingredient makers Burcon and Merit to increase its footprint in the fast-growing plant-based protein segment.

The teaming up will allow Nestle to tap into Burcon’s proprietary plant protein extraction and purification technology as well as Merit’s plant protein production capabilities.

Burcon Nutrascience is a specialist in plant-based proteins derived from soy, pea, hemp, canola, sunflower seed and various other crops.

Merit Functional Foods is building a commercial-scale production facility to produce plant-based protein using Burcon’s technology.
