Due to an increase in consumer health consciousness, plant protein is no longer a trend, it's a key market driver.

Growing Demand for Plant Protein

The global pea protein market is set to surpass USD 325 million by 2027, according to the latest research report by Global Market Insights Inc. As consumers' desire for healthier food and beverage alternatives continues to grow, the need for clean and nutrient-dense ingredient solutions will be at the forefront of innovation.

A Sustainable Future
Pea is a highly sustainable crop from a farming standpoint. It does not need irrigation and no nitrogen fertilizer. The crop itself captures nitrogen from the environment it is grown in contributing to soil fertility and to better yields in crop rotations. Pea protein production takes less waste and leads to fewer CO2 emissions than animal-based equivalents. IMCD is proud to partner with Roquette, as sustainability is a critical value in every aspect of its operation.

Canada is one of the world's biggest pea-producing countries, accounting for 30% of global production

Strategically Located

Roquette has chosen to base this new facility at the heart of the pea-growing area. Manitoba provides highly skilled and well-educated labour, as well as reliable and sustainable hydroelectric power. Canada has an excellent competitive advantage from a farming standpoint, with several developments and investments supporting this supply chain.
