future of protein production with plates with healthy food and protein

Marlow Ingredients and Tempty Foods unveil collaboration for use of Marlow mycoprotein

May 23, 2023

UK-based Marlow Ingredients (the newly formed division of Marlow Foods), owner of the market-leading Quorn brand, has forged a pioneering partnership with innovative food startup, Tempty Foods – a company started at Danish Technical University.

The partnership sees Tempty Foods, the first Danish company to launch mycoprotein based products, become the first producer other than Marlow Foods to use Marlow mycoprotein, the super protein already used in more than 100 Quorn branded meat alternatives.

“We have signaled our intention to empower other, like-minded producers to join us in using Marlow mycoprotein as we strive to make it easier for people across the globe to eat more sustainably and to play their part in tackling climate change,” said Tom Lindley, Head of Strategy and Marketing at Marlow Ingredients.

“We’re delighted that Tempty Foods is the first of what we believe will be many food and beverage manufacturers to recognize the huge potential of our mycoprotein and its many sustainable and nutritional benefits.”

“The introduction of Marlow mycoprotein into our products will give us a sustainable and competitive edge," added Martina Lokajova, CEO & Co-founder of Tempty Foods. "It will also empower us to continue creating next generation alternatives that focus on the key values of taste and nutrition, rather than imitating meat.”

The Tempty Foods brand is already launched in Denmark’s food-service sector, enabling chefs to create delicious, sustainable meals. The collaboration with Marlow Ingredients will help Tempty Foods accelerate growth and expand into new channels and markets.

The collaboration between Marlow Ingredients and Tempty Foods follows an announcement in April this year that Marlow mycoprotein was being made available to other food and beverage manufacturers via the newly launched division. The move forms part of Marlow Food’s mission to become a net positive business by 2030 and, in that year, provide eight billion servings of mycoprotein – one for every person on the planet.
