Sofos Protein Biotechnology is going to invest an additional 5 million euros at its production site in Volokolamsk. The producer of high-quality chicken hydrolysates, broths and peptides boosts its production capacity. The production areas, raw material storage will be expanded. Moreover, there is also the installation of brand new 25-meter high spray dryer.
The size of this investment emphasizes our ambitions to respond to the rapid growth in nutrition and in savory segments. Such as the production of hydrolysates and peptides for sports nutrition that should start in 2021.
Sofos Protein Biotechnology mainly extracts clean label natural ingredients from chicken for the food industry. This is a high-tech process based on thermal and enzymatic hydrolyses in which the nutritional value of the proteins and peptides remains intact. These protein hydrolysates, broths and peptides then used in the food industry to replace large quantities of synthetic ingredients that today less and less accepted by consumers and companies in food industry.
Increasing capacity also leads to an increase in the production team. We create additional employment in our location.
At the moment, the expansion works are in full preparation to achieve a nearly doubling of production capacity by 2021.
Sofos Protein Biotechnology was founded in 2019 and produce its broths, hydrolysates and peptides for the food industry. The developed production process aims to provide an answer to the global protein shortage by pursuing a zero waste policy.
Recently, new ingredients for premium pet food were created and added to our product range.
