Vancouver, BC – February 3, 2022 – Nepra Foods Inc., (“Nepra”) (CSE:NPRA ) FSE:2P6.F)(OTCQB:NPRFF), creator of nutritious plant-based and allergen-free food, announces today that it has invested $550,000 USD to expand its strategic partnership with a major Indian ingredients manufacturer for additional capacities. In development since 2019, now solidified, this venture enables Nepra to expand research and production of its proprietary plant-based egg white replacement powder; a truly revolutionary innovation to the allergen-free market.
This expansion, which entails capacity ownership in perpetuity will allow Nepra Foods to market this unique allergen-free egg white replacement to existing customers and commercial bakeries that are seeking to remove allergens from their operation facilities by using a plant-based alternative. Unlike current plant-based liquid egg replacements, Nepra’s is specifically designed for commercial baking, providing an interchangeable functionality compared to conventional egg white powders, including the structure and foaming capabilities to produce all baked goods, even meringues and soufflés.
The egg white powder market, which is estimated to reach $2.64 billion by 2026, has long been plagued by fluctuating supplies of conventional eggs and increasing demand from commercial food manufacturers for allergen-free alternatives.1 Led by newly appointed Vice President of Ingredient sales Eric Kriegisch, Nepra’s recent investment positions it to immediately begin sampling its plant-based product in Q2-22, to wholesale customers in time for full product rollout in Q3-22. As a result of Nepra’s investment in capacity expansion, its egg white replacement powder inventories are expected to climb to 35MT in 2022 and increase capacities by 154% in early 2023. The additional manufacturing capacity in India is expected to contribute substantial top-line revenue to Nepra’s rapidly expanding wholesale ingredients business based in Centennial, Colorado
“We are very excited to expand our relationship and capacities with a trusted India-based manufacturer of quality plant-based ingredients. This initial investment will scale our proprietary plant-based and allergen-free egg white powder from R&D to full-scale production, allowing Nepra to address the increasing demand for allergen-free egg white powder alternatives in the wholesale baking industry,” says Nepra COO, John Maculley.
