Russia’s first facility for advanced pea processing launched in Tolyatti


Euro Technologies Company has launched in the test mode a plant for advanced pea processing in Tolyatti, Samara region. This facility is unprecedented in Russia, reports UkrAgroConsult.

There is no similar separation by the product’s molecular mass and technical properties in the country as of now.

This field is popular in France, Canada and Belgium, where it has been developing for some 7-8 years now. Apart from pea protein, the plant makes pea flour and pea starch from Russian feedstock. The products are made from Russian GMO-free raw material grown in Samara and Ulyanovsk regions.

The company is going to make sales mostly in Russia, primarily in the Black Earth, Ural and Moscow regions. Its plans for a more distant future include entering China’s market, as this country consumes specifically pea starch.
