Join Bright Green Partners at the Plant-Based Protein Manufacturing Summit

In a groundbreaking move, Kraft Heinz announced in February 2022 that it would team up with NotCo in an unprecedented partnership aimed at making plant-based foods more accessible. This first-of-its-kind collaboration leverages the Chilean plant-based startup’s innovative AI platform and Heinz’s significant market reach and experience in rapidly increasing production and distribution.

The partnership has proven to be successful, with the launch of Kraft Heinz Not Company’s first plant-based products in 2022 and plans for expansion in 2023 and beyond.

By combining the unique strengths and expertise of different companies, partnerships like the one between Kraft Heinz and NotCo are able to tackle challenges related to scaling up production and distribution, improving the taste and texture of plant-based products, and innovating new ingredients and processes. As a result, plant-based food manufacturers are able to bring new and exciting products to market, while also creating a more flexible and efficient supply chain that can better meet the growing demand for plant-based alternatives.

Partnerships drive the evolution of ingredients, infrastructure, investment, services, and the manufacturing ecosystem

Effective partnerships are critical to both the growth of plant-based protein manufacturing and to current and future business objectives. One such platform for driving this innovation and collaboration is the Plant-Based Protein Manufacturing Summit.
