Recent Developments:

  • In August 2019, Cargill (US) invested USD 75 million to expand the production capacity for PURIS Pea protein at its Minneapolis facility due to surge in the demand for pea protein. This initiative was strategically taken by witnessing a growing demand for plant-based protein in the North American region. Through this they aim to cater to a large number of customers with tasty, sustainable and label-friendly pea protein across North America.
  • In July 2018, ADM (US) and Cargill (US) launched their new joint venture SoyVen in Egypt to manufacture soybean meal and oil for customers in Egypt. Both the companies hold equal interest in the company. Their production plant is located in Borg Al-Arab whose daily production capacity is doubled to 6,000 MT, witnessing a growing demand for higher-protein soybean meal and oil by the Egyptian customers. This will also lower down the need for imports from the international markets.
  • In November 2017, ADM expanded its ingredient portfolio with the launch of Nutriance, a range of wheat protein concentrates having applications in sports and geriatric nutrition.
  • In April 2017, DowDuPont launched SUPRO XT 55, an isolated soy protein in protein beverages to increase its product portfolio.
