May we introduce – VeganoProt® – our new line for Vegan Protein Diversity.
Plant-based foods are on the rise, and this trend is being reflected in the increased popularity of vegan cheese, yogurt, and milk alternatives. A study by Mintel found that consumers are becoming more and more open to alternative products, resulting in a surge in innovation in plant-based foods.
For example, in the past three years, the number of new vegan cheeses launched globally has increased by an average of 17 percent year-on-year. This growth is being driven by countries like Germany, the United States, and Canada, where the largest dairies have entered the market to launch plant-based variants under their well-known brands.
We at ALPMA have been working with vegetable protein, such as those from peas and plant starch, for a long time. Now we are bringing these activities together under the trademark VeganoProt®. The new line supports a diversity of vegan protein – whether from starch or oil plants or protein obtained by fermentation. So, regardless of what type of protein, ALPMA supplies customized equipment for producing plant-based products. ALPMA’s proven process technology and the resulting improved taste of these plant-based products make them more attractive and convenient for consumers.

ALPMA offers the customer security in case of calamities to the membrane plant. Free storage of customer- and application-specific membranes at ALPMA saves customers time, storage costs and energy while increasing plant production reliability.
How does the membrane service work? ALPMA develops a carefully tailored quotation for the desired membrane modules. After placing the order, the membranes will be stored at ALPMA under proper conditions in Dresden, and ensures that they are available to the customer at all times within 3 business days. This allows sudden production problems to be met at very short notice.
ALPMA designs and manufactures systems for a wide range of cheese types and farm sizes. An ALPMA line is designed to be modular and can therefore be adapted incrementally to the growing size of the company.
The variety of semi-hard cheeses is enormous. Therefore, each product requires an individual production line. For this reason, ALPMA joins its expertise with SULBANA to present to you a comprehensive range of solutions and techniques.
An innovation engine in pasta filata and mozzarella, Sulbana has earned an excellent reputation. To maximize synergies, SULBANA’s cheese-making technology division is now under the roof of the ALPMA Group. This enables ALPMA to offer customers a customized and comprehensive service in the field of cheese preparation technology.
