We are pleased to announce that the Center of Excellence in Food, Tourism and Leisure (CoEFTL) joined a 13.9M€ EU Project “LIKE A PRO” to mainstream alternative proteins for human consumption.

The LIKE-A-PRO project (No. 101083961), funded by the European Union under the call “HORIZON-CL6-2022-FARM2FORK-01-07” started officially on November 1, 2022. The project coordinated by the technological center CTIC CITA (Spain) brings together key representatives along the entire alternative edible protein value chain (protein producers, ingredient & product developers, culinary centers, food clusters), scientists and market & communication experts and European consumers in a cross-disciplinary consortium (42 entities in 17 countries). The CoEFTL will play a vital role in the consortium, being responsible for the organization of a “Living Lab” on its premises, whereby consumers will have the chance to test and evaluate several food recipes based on alternative proteins.
