In Sweden, there is both a great potential and a great need for increased cultivation and processing of plant-based foods from alternative protein crops. The overall aim of the project is therefore to increase the production of Swedish plant proteins for food. The objective is to identify bottlenecks and possible solutions from experimental cultivation to cultivation on a commercial scale. In the proposed project development needs will be identified and the soft factors that need to be addressed to accelerate the development of commercial production of new protein crops, this will be done through workshops and working groups. A central part of the project is practical cultivation and drying experiments based on the results from the workshops and working groups. The project will deliver a proposal on working methods and relevant technical solutions as well as advice for cultivation, handling and drying to scale up the cultivation of at least two new protein crops with development needs.
