Kilkenny company producing sustainable new foods to feed the planet

By COLIN BARTLEY

A KILKENNY company is part of a ground-breaking new project aimed at producing new sustainable foods needed to feed the planet going into the future.

Beotanics, based in Stoneyford, is an integral part of the new EU project to develop new alternative proteins that will be launched in January 2020.

The new-protein foods will be produced from plants, fungi, by-products, and residues aimed at creating sustainable and nutritious alternative proteins, as a response to some of the most urgent challenges faced by the planet, including climate change and global food security.

It is expected the first wave of products – including plant-based meats, fish, seafood, cheese, infant formula, and other dairy products, as well as baked goods – will go to market in or around 2025.

A total of 33 partners from industry, research, and academia across 21 different countries, including Beotanics, will collaborate on the project, which is led by the School of Food and Nutritional Sciences at University College Cork in Ireland.
