At Chr. Hansen, we have spent more than 145 years harnessing the power of nature to help producers create foods that are safe, fresh and delicious. Our VEGA™ cultures offer producers all-natural solutions for crafting superior plant-based products.
In May 2021, we launched Chr. Hansen’s VEGA™ brand by introducing the VEGA™ Culture Kit designed specifically for plant-based products and with a focus on dairy alternatives. But that was just the beginning! Research and development continued, and in April 2022 we entered the meat alternatives space, launching additional VEGA™ cultures designed to keep plant-based meat alternatives fresh and safe for longer.
VEGA™ offers natural solutions that deliver on the key consumer drivers most relevant for the alternative proteins space:
The VEGA™ Philosophy
The cultures in VEGA™ have been created with a philosophy of keeping it simple for producers, while providing the flexibility to be creative. Our cultures are specifically designed to ferment robustly across a wide range of plant bases, so producers can focus on the features they want rather than manufacturing performance.
