Smart Protein: From Farm to Fork

The next generation of smart protein food


Seeking to generate alternative proteins

The Smart Protein project seeks to develop the next generation of smart protein foods which are cost effective, resource efficient, and nutritious.

Proteins will be extracted from plants and through the up-cycling of waste-stream foods such as pasta residues or bread crusts. These smart proteins will be used to create ingredients and products which are nutritious, trusted, environmentally friendly, and part of a secure and future-proofed supply chain. Potential products and ingredients could include new forms of plant-based meat, fish, seafood, and baked goods, as well as cheese and other dairy products.

The project is a partnership between more than 30 external partners, including universities, research institutions, corporations, SMEs, and NGOs.
