Fenchem ramps up production of pea protein

By Maggie Hennessy , 29-Nov-2013

Amid a tightening market for protein sources, Fenchem Biotek Ltd. is expanding the manufacturing capacity and enlarging supply quantity of its VegePro pea protein in order to guarantee a stable supply, with plans to double its manufacturing capacity in the second half of next year. 

Extracted from non-GMO yellow peas from Canada, VegePro pea protein is an ideal substitute for whey and other animal-based proteins as customers seek alternatives due to high price, animal disease risk and growing vegetarian demands. It also provides more advantages in GMO risk control, allergen avoiding and lower anti-nutritional factors when compared with soy protein.

Fenchem has been specialized in developing, manufacturing and marketing active ingredients for the food industry for almost 20 years, with offices in the US, Czech Republic, Malaysia, Germany and South Africa.
