UK company Novo Farina Ltd

Rapid growth in demand for high-protein meat substitutes drives £3 mln expansion

Novo Farina uses locally-grown whole yellow peas to make meat substitutes and wheat-based ingredients for the food industry and retailers. At its base in Bowthorpe, it makes a texturised pea protein for plant-based burgers, sausages and other vegan products, and it also supplies pea flour, pea crumbs and gluten-free snacks.

However, after securing £3.1m from private investors earlier this year, it is now planning the next phase of its development. According to managing director Dr Chris Harrison, the firm has bought new equipment and hopes to move to a larger premises at the Food Enterprise Park at Easton next year, to scale up its production, and pursue its goal of producing its own protein-enhanced products.

All of this is powered by rapid growth in demand for high-protein meat substitutes from increasingly health-conscious and environmentally-aware consumers who want carbon-friendly products that don't rely on imported soya, rice or chickpeas.
