Second pea processing plant  


2019-11-01

After having completed in 2018 a €35 million investment in the extension of its pea plant in Belgium, COSUCRA is now in a position to further support its client’s innovation through pea ingredients, including pea protein. To continue its development in the fast-evolving market for plant-based food, COSUCRA has opened a second pea processing plant in Denmark.
The project includes the renovation and upgrading of a former soybean processing plant in the port of Aarhus. The plant will be jointly operated by the current owner, AABT and COSUCRA. The facility will process local peas from the Baltic region, transported by sea-vessel to the plant. The project aims to minimize the CO2 footprint of the process by transforming the secondary products into biogas through an agreement signed with a local biogas plant. 
The Danish pea processing project is part of Cosucra’s 60 mio € multi-year development program to support the growth in pea protein and chicory root fibre. The commissioning will take place in the first halfof 2020, COSUCRA reported.
