INNOVATION of the year 2021

THE GREEN BEAN (The Netherlands)

Recognized for the innovative use of the green bean’s protein potential. The Green Bean currently manufactures plant-based feta, camembert and yoghurt using an extracted plant protein. The resulting green-tinted products are a true conversation starter, but still serve as a reminder that this dairy alternative has a positive environmental impact on soil quality.

Innovations happen by thinking "out of the box." "The Green Bean" project is one such plant-based exercise with great added value. We are very excited and look forward to it being available in the traditional cheese store. Congratulations on your project and wish the team the best of luck in rolling it out in the market.
