PepsiCo seeks novel protein sources with ‘easy to pronounce’ names and ‘a good sustainability story’

In its request for novel protein sources – which has a deadline of December 29, 2017 – PepsiCo explains that it “wishes to avoid usage of dairy, egg, meat, and gelatin sourced protein” and has already conducted “extensive work” into soy, moringa, Khai-nam (duckweed), cricket powder, meal worm powder, pea, and dairy protein, and is not looking for submissions utilizing these sources.
