The rapid development of innovative products plays a central role in the continuing growth of plant-based alternatives, evidenced by the growth of food tech company Planteneers.
This specialist in functional systems for plant-based alternatives has become a key player in the strongly expanding plant-based market in just three years – and have now opened an office in Aurora, Illinois to meet demand where in addition to sales, distribution, and marketing specialists, its product managers and R&D technologists will provide new ideas and high-sales-potential concepts.
Said Gretchen Moon, Vice President of Commercial Operations for North America “Our portfolio comprises three product areas – plant-based alternatives to meat and sausage products, seafood, and cheese and dairy. In plant-based sausage products, our focus is on alternatives to raw sausages like salami and chorizo, as well as snack-sticks, cold cuts, and small sausages.
“Cheese and dairy products are also interesting from our perspective. Manufacturers can use our systems to make plant-based alternatives to parmesan, cheddar, feta, and cream cheese.”
Plant-based cream cheese for cheesecake is another possibility. And naturally the systems for ice cream also offer attractive market potential.
In September attendees can meet the team and check out their product highlights in person at the Plant Based World Expo in New York City. At booth #619, Planteneers will present popular demonstrations of their products, including functional systems for making plant-based alternatives to steak, salmon, chicken, salami, mortadella, snack sticks, parmesan, feta, and cheddar. Visitors can taste the resulting plant-based foods and see for themselves how close they are to the flavour and texture of the animal originals. For more visit planteneers.com
