Who we are and what we do

Protein Industries Canada is an industry-led, not-for-profit organization created to position Canada as a global source of high-quality plant-based food, feed and ingredients. Together with trailblazing companies, NGOs, all levels of government and academia, and the capital community, we are working to develop a collaborative and innovative plant-based ecosystem that creates products and technologies to grow the Canadian economy.

As one of Canada’s five Global Innovation Clusters, we co-invest into large-scale science and innovation projects and ecosystem-building activities to transform Canada’s agriculture and food production sector. Together we will help secure Canada’s position as a global leader in the production of plant-based food, feed and ingredients, while also helping tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues — food insecurity, global health and nutrition, and carbon emissions.

We believe that by 2035, Canada can own upwards of 10 per cent of the global plant-based food, feed and ingredient sector. This could mean an additional $25 billion in annual sales for Canada, supported by 17,000 jobs.
