JUST partners with plant-based manufacturer to boost capacity

JUST is partnering with Emsland Group, a German manufacturer of raw materials from vegetables, to expand its protein processing capacity.

The partnership will provide the scale needed to meet increasing global demand for the company’s plant-based egg product in the US.

Partnering with JUST to process mung bean protein – the key ingredient in JUST Egg – is a first for Emsland Group.

This is the latest step JUST has taken to boost its capacity to meet demand. In December, it acquired a 30,000-square-foot factory in Appleton, Minnesota that specialises in patented protein extraction methods for JUST Egg.

In March, it announced a host of global strategic partnerships to manufacture and distribute JUST Egg across North America, Europe, Latin America and East Asia.

“Our partnership with Emsland Group is not only an innovative and creative development in the world of protein processing but it will ultimately help us make JUST Egg more accessible and affordable to customers and consumers around the globe,” said Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of JUST.

“We’re excited to learn from their more than 90 years of experience and leadership in the food industry, guided by the philosophy ‘using nature to create.’”
