Novel practices

The European plant protein deficit has prompted VALPRO to take action. To rejuvenate plant protein production practices and drive innovation, VALPRO Path has established 5 Innovation Production Systems (IPSs) across Germany, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, and Denmark. These IPSs span diverse pedo-climatic regions and prioritize high-value protein crops like pea, lupin, chickpea, faba bean, and lentils. Through VALPRO Path, we’re dedicated to cultivating sustainable protein crop growth by selecting optimal plant protein sources and exploring their synergies. These IPSs will not only demonstrate novel value propositions but also bolster circularity and resilience within the value chain.
