Nepra Prepares to Bring Textured Hemp Protein to the Plant-Based Protein Market

Nepra Foods, Ltd., a Colorado-based vegan food company, has recently announced the expansion of their facility with the installation of proprietary THP™ production equipment.

The company has focused on the formulation, development, and production of plant-based and allergen-free food. With the addition of this new equipment, they are better equipped to produce their proprietary THP (textured hemp protein) – the basis of their PROPASTA™ product line. PROPASTA is a line of ready-to-eat frozen meals and meat analogues. 

This step towards self-sufficient production processes should help the company combat shipping lead times which are at an all-time high due to the global supply chain disruptions. It will provide the tools needed for large-scale production processes as Nepra Foods aims to scale up their processes in preparation for their PROPASTA™ product launch in early 2022. This will require the continuation of in-house testing and accelerated product innovation leading to national distribution.

Nepra Foods is committed to developing plant-based foods that provide the necessary nutrition without compromising quality or taste. They take this mission one step further by formulating food that is allergen-free.
