By 2050, it is estimated that an extra 265 million tons of protein will be needed to meet the demands of the world’s population. Finding new protein sources is essential. From soy, oilseed, pulses to upcycling side streams or newer ingredients like microalgae or insects, we are leading the way in developing sustainable alternatives. More and more consumers are demanding environmentally friendly products like meat and fish substitutes. From bean to burger, we provide the complete solution along the protein value chain.

Challenges today

10 billion
people living on Earth by 2050.
It is expected that, by 2050, there will be 10 billion people living on Earth. If this becomes a reality, global food demand will increase by approximately 70%.
50 %
increase in protein production is needed
By 2050, primary protein production needs to increase by 50%, but today, 85% of arable land is already in use.
40 %
of vegetable protein lands on our plates
Four plant-based proteins are needed on average to make one animal-based protein.

Soy, the "new" protein source" for meat substitutes

We are already familiar with soy as a meat replacer for vegetarian dishes, like tofu and tempeh. Also for the novel meat-like substitutes, soy is the major ingredient. Soy protein isolates and concentrates can be processed into very strong textured meat substitutes with minimum off-flavors.

Pulses are an excellent and versatile source of protein.

Our technology helps to maximize their potential. Pulses are extremely versatile and can be used in breads, pasta products and meat substitutes. We have developed a wide range of products and solutions to help increase pulse production.

Bühler processes and machines turn raw materials into profit.

When it comes to the preparation of oilseeds like soybeans, rapeseed, sunflower seeds etc. you need reliable partner that can offer you sophisticated process know-how and modern technologies. 

New horizons – insects as a protein source.

A growing population, coupled with diminishing natural resources, means the race is on to find alternative sources of nutrition. One such source is insects, mainly used in feed applications, and a novel ingredient for experimental food applications.

We bring microalgae to the plate.

Single-cell organisms such as dunaliella, spirulina or chlorella contain up to 70% protein. Our solutions can help you to valorize your microalgae and derived ingredients at various stages.
