Improve: increasing the proportion of plant proteins in food
Tereos is one of the founders of Improve, a research platform dedicated to increasing the uses and markets for plant proteins. Launched in 2013, it aims to tackle the important issue of sustainability by increasing the proportion of plant proteins in the food we eat.
Work is being undertaken on the full range of plant proteins (wheat, corn, alfalfa, potatoes, peas, fava beans, lupini beans, rape, etc.), for various different uses (human and animal foodstuffs, bio-sourced materials, cosmetics, etc.).
