future of protein production with plates with healthy food and protein

Acenzia selected to participate in Protein Industries Canada program to develop plant-based protein products

June 11, 2024

Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc has announced that its wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, Acenzia Inc, has been selected by Protein Industries Canada to participate in a new project to bring new protein products with a superior nutritional amino acid profile to the global marketplace. The total project is expected to see approximately CA$5.4 million invested into the development, reformulation, and commercialization of three consumer-ready protein products: a modular, a ready-to-mix and a ready-to-drink low-volume liquid protein. Acenzia will invest approximately CA$600,000, Protein Industries Canada will invest approximately CA$2.3 million, and two other partner companies together will invest approximately CA$2.5 million over three defined phases.

The project partners are utilizing innovative solutions to offer alternative plant-based protein options that meet the quality, sensory and muscle health benefits of whey protein isolate.

In addition to options that address medical nutrition needs, including those associated with surgery, critical illness and chronic disease, this project will also create products for the active living and high-performance sports markets. The end products will contain a novel plant-based protein ingredient blend with high functionality and taste quality.

"Cultivating innovation and advancing health and wellness are at the core of Acenzia's mission," commented Grant Bourdeau, Co-founder & President of Acenzia. "Acenzia has a longstanding history of science-based product innovation and development of proprietary technology which has been a key to our development and distribution of effective health and wellness product solutions. As a proud partner in this Protein Industries Canada-supported project, we are excited to harness our expertise in contract manufacturing, product formulation, R&D and sustainable packaging to develop ecologically friendly, evidence-based, plant protein products that cater to the evolving needs of consumers in the active living market."
