This is by far the most efficient way to produce proteins for human food locally in Europe, achieving a yield of over 7,5 tons of beans per hectare at 33% proteins. Meatless produces a textured product in high volumes straight from the milled beans, not using high pressure or high temperature in its gentle production processes. These textured products, based on 100% whole food fava beans, are delivered to the food processing industry in the UK, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands as a basic clean label product to produce vegetarian and vegan products.
At the end of August, fava beans are harvested in the Netherlands and Germany to provide regional raw material for our textured products. After four years of research & development, we succeeded in realizing the first Northern European plant-based protein production for direct use in vegetarian food as whole food.
