Horizon4Proteins is growing!

LIKE-A-PRO becomes a member of the Horizon4Proteins cluster

Press release Fraunhofer CBP /

The recently funded European projects LIKE-A-PRO and GIANT LEAPS are proud to announce that they have become members of Horizon4Proteins, a collaboration launched in 2021 by four EU-funded projects working on alternative proteins (NextGenProteins, ProFuture, Smart Protein and SUSINCHAIN).

While facing climate change and natural resource scarcity, ensuring sufficient, nutritious, safe and affordable food to a fast-growing world population with changing dietary habits becomes increasingly challenging. The protein supply is in this respect most critical. Integration of a variety of new or alternative protein sources from both terrestrial and aquatic origins into new and/or existing processes or products needs to be explored, in order to develop and ensure more sustainable, resilient supply chains, featuring high consumer acceptability by a clean labelling approach and attractive market opportunities.

Sharing this goal, the four projects have been working together in key aspects such as: consumer acceptance of alternative proteins, safety and regulatory challenges, food applications and sustainability.

LIKE-A-PRO's and GIANT LEAPS involvement will ensure continuity of the Horizon4Protein initiative and, through this collaboration, both projects will support the EU transition towards a more sustainable and resilient food system.
