EverGrain Aims For Better Sustainability, Taste And Nutrition For Plant-based Products With New Ingredient

EverGrain Ingredients, an Anheuser-Busch InBev-backed malt fiber and protein company, will offer ingredients that aim to enable a new standard for reduced water use, emissions and land use while ensuring better nutrition and taste. The company will display these ingredients at the Food Ingredients Europe trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany.

“People are talking, and what they’re saying is they want vegan options that taste better, are more nutritious, and have a really positive impact on the planet,” said Greg Bildt, CEO of EverGrain. “This was the driving force behind EverGrain as we through our ingredients come up with solutions that can improve the taste, sustainability and nutrition of beverages, bakeries and multiple other applications.”

EverGrain has partnered with The Carbon Underground to support its “Adopt a Meter” initiative and will fund the restoration of 1,000 meters of land on behalf of exhibitors. Those who walk into the exhibit can visit the EverGrain booth for a short survey on topics related to sustainability, and in turn, EverGrain will take back one meter for their time.

“It is our responsibility to put the food industry on the most sustainable path forward, and this is one of the many commitments we are making to contribute to the change our planet so badly needs,” said Jacqueline Hochreiter, Director of Global Strategy at EverGrain. & Sustainability. “We are excited to expand our partnership with The Carbon Underground and other organizations fighting climate change in 2022 and beyond.”

EverGrain engaged Blonk’s Netherlands-based consultants to independently verify its assertion that it can enable protein and fiber ingredients with lower greenhouse gas emissions, land use, and water use when compared to most other conventional ingredients. EverGrain is pleased to share evidence to support its bold claim with attendees at Fi Europe.

The EverGrain initiative reflects Fi Europe’s trade fair commitment to encouraging the food and health industries to make changes toward a more sustainable future. The show is powered entirely by renewable energy, which is a huge shift from the status quo of trade fairs.

“Sustainability is not just a buzzword anymore, and its implications extend far beyond environmental impact,” the event’s website says. “In Europe, sustainability is of increasing importance to attendees and exhibitors, as well as to the market as a whole. We are not only committed to running the event in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, but we also want to go ahead and inspire sustainable development for the industry we serve.”

This show will be EverGrain’s first major commercial debut since its launch in January 2021.

“Pushing the food and beverage industry into a more sustainable future is a task that we cannot achieve on our own,” Hoschretter said. Consumers have amplified the global conversation about food waste, and it’s time for our industry to do its part. EverGrain’s work on sustainability is just getting started, and we encourage anyone who wants to join the movement to visit our booth.”

In its booth (30K261), EverGrain will sample cookies and fortified bread made with EverVita barley fiber and plant-based milk made with EverPro barley protein. For more information or to schedule a booth visit, please visit the EverGrain website or send an email to inquiry@everingredients.com.
