Jun 2018


Cargill invests in pea protein: In January, Puris, the largest North American producer of pea protein and Cargill signed a joint venture agreement to accelerate a new wave of “great tasting, sustainable and label-friendly plant-based foods,” as the consumer demand for plant-based protein continues to rise. Cargill is a minority investor in Puris’ pea protein business, with Cargill financially backing Puris for growth into the future. Before forming this joint venture with Puris, Cargill maintained a distribution agreement representing Puris pea protein to select customers since the end of 2015.
