Geneva, IL, United States – February 18, 2014 – 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.
Roquette America, part of the Roquette Group, is well recognized in the US as a leader in innovative nutritional ingredients. “Our partnership with World Food Processing allows Roquette America to give the US 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.”
World Food Processing has unmatched capabilities and advanced technologies that result in ingredients that are pure, secure, and fully traceable. “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,” said Jerry Lorenzen, CEO of World Food Processing.
“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 Roquette’s position as world 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, IL, which offers extensive formulation knowledge and partnership in applications development.
