Canada holds plenty of growth opportunity for the plant-protein sector. The global demand for plant-based proteins is rising, and, as a top producer of the world’s protein-rich crops, Canada is in a prime position to meet that demand.

Doing so, however, requires a strong plant-protein ecosystem. One that spans the agrifood value chain, and includes members from not only across Canada, but countries around the world. It requires an ecosystem that values innovation and collaboration, and that connects research with first-hand experience and on-site utilization.

Protein Industries Canada’s members work to bring strength to that ecosystem every day. Together, they’re launching new plant-based food and feed ingredients, addressing processing challenges, creating new technology and crop breeds for farmers, and opening new market opportunities for exporters. You can join them in this work by becoming a Protein Industries Member, as well.

An annual $500, GST-included fee enrolls you as either an Industry or Non-voting Protein Industries Canada member. Both provide you to access exclusive market analysis tools, assessment reports and a subscription to our biweekly newsletter, filled with timely videos, articles and event invitations. They also enable you to be a partner on a Technology or Capacity Building project.

To be considered an Industry member, you must be a Canadian or international for-profit business whose primary business is in the agriculture and/or agri-food industry, or have an interest in the development of these industries, or provide financial investment or services to the industry. If you’re an Industry member located within Canada or with a Canadian subsidiary, you’re eligible to submit a project application, vote at our Annual General Meeting and let a representative’s name stand for nomination to the board of directors. You may also be a part of a project consortia and contribute to a project, but you may only be a lead applicant if you have a Canadian location.

You will be considered a Non-voting member if you are a Canadian or international government representative, association, economic development organization, business accelerator, not-for-profit entity, university, college, research/technology centre, or other professional firm, bank or consultant. As a Non-voting member, you may be a part of a project consortia and contribute to a project, but cannot be the lead and cannot be the lead applicant. You also cannot vote at our AGM, but may be appointed to the Board of Directors as an Independent Director.

Already, our members are making a difference in each the Canadian and global plant-protein sectors. We hope you’ll join them in this journey.
