Ingredion unveils North American facility to support plant-based protein development

Ingredion has expanded its Canadian manufacturing assets in Vanscoy/Saskatchewan. The opening of its new production facility marks increased capabilities for pulse flours and concentrates sustainably sourced from North American farms. The added capacity at the plant, along with a new proprietary process, will enable food and beverage brands to answer consumer demand for sustainable, plant-based proteins in more of their branded products. Products will become available in the fourth quarter of 2021.

The advancements at the facility further reinforce Ingredion’s commitment to the future of plant-based food, says the company. The new production line will enable manufacturers to use on-trend plant proteins across various food applications. The facility currently produces flours and concentrates from pulses such as peas, lentils and fava beans.
