Vegan market should face high prices, says vegetable protein processor – 09/28/2021 -Panel SA

After the increase in the price of meat, vegetable proteins must also undergo adjustments. French food processor Roquette Frères, which supplies pea protein to Beyond Meat, said on Monday (27) that the dramatic price increase will be passed on to customers.

According to the company, the movement is due to the limited supply of raw material at the same time as the world demand for vegetable protein grows.

Roquette Frères claims that the pea supply in Europe suffered from low productivity and wet weather during the harvest in France. In Canada, another major supplier of the legume, an exceptional drought in the summer of this year in the country brought down production.
