Canada-UK: Plant-based Protein Innovation
12 - 18 months
Up to £1.5m
This is stage 1 of a 2-stage competition.
The aim of this Expression of Interest (EoI) competition is to find the best proposals to be put forward to the full application stage of the competition.
The aim of the full-stage competition is to support the development of the plant-based protein sector. The objective is to meet global consumer demands for alternative proteins and to create export opportunities for the technologies, products and services developed.
Your project must include the use of plant-based proteins from crops that have the potential for deployment at scale across Canadian and UK food and feed supply chains. This can include, but is not limited to:
Your project can consider innovations that utilise high-protein crops in combination with other plant-based proteins, for example, potato and hemp. You can also consider other innovations that help enhance plant-based products, including oils or fats derived from cellular or acellular fermentation.
