Lupin – a Plantbased Alternative in the Protein Transition

With a strong focus on protein transition, East Netherlands focuses on developing healthier and personalised food, giving consumers a more central position in the  shift from food chains towards a more holistic, sustainable “food system”, in which the relationship up to the primary producer is strengthened. New smart food business models focus on new food products, innovation in production and stimulate new earning models for nature.

Lovely Lupin is one of the many examples illustrating plantbased alternatives in the Protein Transition

Instead of getting drink nuts with the beer, or rather, guests of a few Wageningen pubs got a portion of lupine. In restaurants, bitterballen, curry and lupine soup are on the menu.
