The growing market for plant-based foods is being driven by the emergence of the flexitarian consumer. A start-up in the plant-based space wanted to deliver a high-quality and clean label plant-based poultry product for the retail channel. Armed with a great concept but lacking some of the necessary resources and expertise, this customer partnered with us to create a poultry alternative that delivered on taste, nutrition and functionality.
Our scientists and chefs collaborated to create a high-quality poultry alternative for the customer using Radicle™ by Kerry, a unique portfolio of plant-based ingredients and solutions. We first selected clean-label and sustainable plant protein sources to match the functional, sensorial and nutritional requirements of the project brief. Then, leveraging our innovative taste expertise, we worked with the customer to develop bespoke flavour solutions with fresh, natural and authentic taste. Working together, we pioneered a plant-based product that delivered optimal taste and texture and helped the brand create a name for itself in the poultry alternative space.
Our rich experience in plant-based products allowed us to deliver proprietary consumer insights and culinary know-how. By utilising our Radicle by Kerry portfolio of plant-based solutions, we were able to quickly deliver the customer a holistic end-to-end solution that was critical for success.
