Barvecue and Arbiom are pleased to announce a strategic partnership focused on innovation to enhance the taste, texture, and nutritional profile of clean-label plant-based meats, with the goal of dramatically improving consumer acceptance of plant-based foods. The partnership includes focus group research, product innovation, and commercial trial.
“The world’s demand for protein is expected to double by 2050, and as a result, the need for high-quality alternative protein sources is going to increase dramatically,” said Zack Werner, Co-Founder, and COO of Barvecue. “We are excited to work with Arbiom on protein innovation in the plant-based meat space.”
Dr. Ricardo Ekmay, ARBIOM SVP Nutrition and Product Development, noted, “Arbiom’s functional GMO-free ingredients have proven to be an exceptional protein source for a variety of applications. Not only do they have a high protein content and balanced amino acid profile, but they consistently show class-leading digestibility, positive impacts on gastrointestinal health, and increased palatability.”
