Together, DSM and Avril will produce a unique protein based on non-genetically modified canola. It has excellent functional properties, a high nutritional value, and a balanced taste profile, making it ideal for a range of applications including meat and dairy alternatives, beverages, baked products, bars and ready-to-mix.
DSM’s globally-recognized expertise in solutions for food and beverage are complemented by Avril’s 35-year legacy in agriculture and ability to consistently deliver high-quality agricultural supply for the partnership, as well as its ambitious strategy of innovation in plant-based proteins. Both companies also excel in human nutrition and health.
The partners’ ambition is to develop a state-of-the-art industrial production facility fully dedicated to canola proteins at Avril’s Saipol facility in Dieppe. Commercial availability from first production could be as early as end 2021.
