Roquette America and World Food Processing have signed an exclusive supply agreement to meet the fast growing North American consumer and customer demand for pea protein.
“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.”
The partnership reinforces Roquette’s position as a leader in the pea protein market with its brand name 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. The partnership is supported not only by Roquette’s manufacturing expertise, but also by a fully dedicated support infrastructure, including quality assurance and control, food safety, and global product development facilities, including the Customer Innovation Center in Geneva, Ill., which offers formulation knowledge and partnership in applications development.
