" Producing and scaling a new generation of plant-based alternatives is a major challenge that requires collaboration among various parties in the food value chain. Therefore, Bühler decided to partner with the German plant-based protein engineering specialist Endeco, to set up this facility. "

Alternative proteins have become an integral part of the quest to sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050. The market is by no means saturated, and there is still much to learn, especially on the ingredient side. The opportunities for differentiation are endless, including process efficiency, functionality and taste. To keep up with the pace of this growing market, we are expanding our infrastructure of pilot plants and application facilities with the leading-edge Protein Application Center. To ensure the best wet processing solution, we are collaborating with Endeco and other partner companies such as MMS and Flottweg by  concentrating all the necessary knowledge at our headquarters in Uzwil – which is a unique and outstanding advantage for our customers. Let’s exploit the opportunities along the entire value chain together!

Test and develop your product on different wet process opportunities to achieve best taste, yield and efficiency of protein isolates. Find the latest solutions and a scalable, full production line in protein processing on 300m2. Our continuous process plant also delivers fibres and starch in high quality. Even more flexibility is offered by our batch line, which, in addition to the production of protein isolates, also offers the possibility of further processing into plant-based beverages. Together with our Grain Innovation Center and the Extrusion Application Center, we offer trials covering the entire value chain from bean to burger.
