Through this partnership, the two companies are looking to develop a production facility for canola proteins at Avril's subsidiary in France. DSM has already commercialized its canola protein isolate CanolaPRO, but with limited production capacity. With this new facility, the company hopes to scale up protein production, with the protein expected to be commercially available by the end of 2021. This news closely follows Burcon's JV to build a production facility capable of processing about 20,000 tonnes of plant proteins, including canola, starting in mid-2020. Although canola meal has primarily been used for animal feed, recent efforts from DSM and Burcon illustrate the growing momentum in leveraging canola protein for food applications.
