Meatless helps R&D teams all over the world with a broad variety of textures that have different qualities compared to others. Usually, research & development processes in food are slow-moving processes. But the market for plant-based products is speeding up and you want to follow the latest developments. This is why we support your R&D department, finding the best way to produce your products in close cooperation. We are a trusted partner in that field for more than 15 years and have a successful track record of newly developed consumer products, product improvements, and efficiency improvements. Our products are versatile and can be used in many different applications, we are happy to help you develop products that meet modern demand on subjects like sustainability and health.
New R&D centre
In 2021 we will build a large test centre to accommodate our R&D team even better and to be able to test with you as a customer at our plant in Goes. It will open new abilities to test on standard processing and packaging equipment and test things like texture and shelf life. The new centre will be opened in January 2022.
The vast majority of vegetarian food is made of either soy, wheat, or pea, but Meatless is producing rice, fava bean, wheat, pea, quinoa and is developing lentils, tapioca, sunflower, pumpkin and chickpea for more variety in vegetarian food. We also have bright white fibres in our portfolio and hypoallergenic varieties. Our products are often made of natural whole foods and are low-processed, we do not use high pressure or extremely high temperatures. We also use mainly local European raw materials, supporting European farmers to produce legumes and grains for processing clean label local food.
