Over the last 10 years, Dunaföldvár and Hungary have become the epicenter of European grain biorefining

High quality plant protein concentrates and isolates are in increasing demand in Europe in markets focused on the reality that European diets are gradually changing. To date, the lack of plant proteins that are all of cost-effective, high quality, clean label GMO free and non-exotic has limited both the scale and the social equity of plant protein market penetration. The plant protein concentrates that Pannonia Bio is introducing to the market in 2022 are thus an important building block for plant proteins generally in the EU and will be complemented in coming years with further similar products.

"The production of plant-based protein products in Dunaföldvár to meet the growing needs of the food industry in the coming years has been Pannonia Bio's overriding focus for years now. Years ago, we invested in several companies and in our own large R&D team, moving us to the forefront of innovation.  That we are coming to market with large scale is what Pannonia does, and our new barley protein facility is actually one of the 10 largest processing facilities in the world " says Ferenc Hódos, Strategic Director of Pannonia Bio.

Pannonia Bio's protein products will be available to food production companies throughout the EU and can be used in a wide variety of food categories, such as snacks, bakery products, breakfast cereals, dairy substitutes and meat substitutes.
