Spotlight on Protein: ChickP Increases Commercial Production and Expands to US Markets

Food tech start-up ChickP Protein Ltd. (ChickP), has revealed the scale-up of its 90 percent chickpea isolate ingredients. Simultaneously, the company is expanding its global activities, sealing a joint market development agreement with Socius Ingredients in the US. ChickP recently increased its production capacity to 20 metric tons per day of its concentrated non-GMO, allergen-free chickpea protein isolate.

“We can currently produce up to 5,000 metric tons a year, and with the growth in the demand, in a few months, we can double and even triple our production,”  said Itay Dana, newly appointed vice president of sales and business development. From a raw material point of view, chickpea is a well-spread crop globally, so the company sees no obstacles in sourcing the right raw material, he explains. “In terms of product offerings, there is a wide spectrum of products that chickpea isolate fits into. These include dairy alternatives as beverages, yogurts, and cheese, egg replacers, as well as bakery and confectionery products,” says Dana.
