Narayan Foods Opens Scaling Platform for Plant-Based Protein Innovations

One of the largest European organic food producers, Narayan Foods, is addressing the growing gap in demand for plant-based proteins and sustainable, healthy food choices by providing a scaling platform to bring new food tech solutions to the market faster.

The scaling platform is a one-stop shop enabling both industrialization and commercialization for startups and scale-ups with innovative solutions for meat, fish, dairy and other animal protein alternatives. Mario Brumat, founder and CEO, explains the rationale behind the business: “Alternative-proteins will be a $162bn market by 2030, but we see start- and scale-ups lacking the necessary production capabilities to capture this market opportunity, nor do they know how to effectively commercialize their products.”

Strong R&D in partnership with two regional universities

The innovative food industrialization takes place in two food production certified facilities, compliant with standards IFS, FDA, USDA, Organic and Vegan. They operate on a partnership model with a full production and R&D support, so startups can focus on their core R&D. They further help in commercialization with access to more than 75,000 stores in 30 markets. Direct partnerships with large retail chains as well as smaller specialized stores is a fast track for products to the market as well as a live testing ground for gathering consumer feedback.



Žiga Vraničar, Chief Strategy Officer, on their added value: “We are the scaling specialists so startups can put their efforts in developing exciting and innovative foods, they can focus on what they are good at, their core – filling the innovation pipeline with updates of their existing products and new ones. We take care of the rest, enabling a fast and smooth market entry. Anyone interested can reach us at [email protected]
