Roquette has announced an investment of EUR40 million in its Vic-sur-Aisne facility in France, to increase its pea processing capacity and respond to a fast-growing global demand for pea protein.

Roquette’s EUR40m investment will significantly increase its processing capacity, says the company. The expansion represents the second investment on pea protein that Roquette makes this year, after its January announcement of a EUR300m new site in Manitoba (Canada). These investments follow a EUR40m expansion of the Vic-sur-Aisne facility in 2015, and they mark a strong acceleration of the group’s pea business line to serve an increasing global demand. 

The two sites in Canada and France will provide an increased offer of pea protein solutions globally and are in close proximity to North American and European consumers. By 2019, the two facilities will represent a combined pea processing capacity of nearly 250,000 tons per year.

Jean-Marc Gilson, CEO of Roquette, said: “We are particularly pleased with the opportunity to expand our pea processing capacity at our Vic-sur-Aisne facility. This significant investment constitutes another important step in the deployment of Roquette’s strategy. By increasing our processing capacity in the pea protein segment, we address a large and growing demand for plant-based nutrition solutions and we reinforce our leadership on this segment, proving once again our commitment to delivering sustainable innovative solutions to the Food, Nutrition and Health sectors. With an expected combined capacity of 250,000 tons in France and Canada, Roquette is in a leading position to continue providing our customers with high-quality plant based products all over the world.”
