Kerry is getting further into plant-based proteins

Dutch plant-based protein product manufacturer Ojah BV has been purchased by Ireland’s Kerry Group for €20 million, and the European Commission has approved the acquisition.

Ojah’s plant-based, vegan products are ‘textured meat alternatives’ that are suitable for meat and fish substitution. The company manufactures around 1600 tons of its ‘Plenti’ brand meat substitute annually. The product is claimed to have a meat-like structure and can be processed similarly to pork, chicken, fish or beef.

Ojah is controlled by the Belgian private equity firm Korys Fund Investments.

Kerry has already launched its ProDiem plant-based protein solution onto the market.
