GreenProtein project

  Ruitenberg Ingredients b.v. is taking part in the EU funded project GreenProtein. The GreenProtein project aims at producing high-added value, food-grade and fully functional proteins and other food ingredients, out of vegetable residues from the packed salad processing. Our role within the project will be to translate the functional properties of the protein into selected applications in order to reduce the time to market. We focus on meat and meat replacement as well as bakery and convenience products. The project started on September 2016 will last 4,5 years and gathers 7 partners, both industrial and academic, from 4 different countries: Royal Cosun (NL), who is also project coordinator, Ruitenberg Ingredients (NL), INRA (FR), Bionet (ES), Innovarum (ES), the Faculty of Business Studies and Law of the University Union Nikola Tesla - FPSP (RS) and Wageningen University & Research - WUR (NL).
