Forecast growth in the market for meat substitutes is behind the planned expansion by ICL Group of Israel.

Rovitaris is a technology developed by ICL to support the production of allergy-free plant-based food, according to a company press statement. The resulting products can be formed and adapted to applications that improve the taste and texture of a range of vegetable proteins substituting for meat, poultry or seafood. It offers good stability when freezing and thawing products as diverse as burgers, nuggets, deli meats and fish sticks. These properties help reduce manufacturing costs, according to ICL.
