Heura Foods, founded in 2017 by Marc Coloma and Bernat Añaños, is committed to the future of food with its pillars based on one of the best-known gastronomic cultures in the world, the Mediterranean, creating solutions that make the current food system obsolete and accelerate the protein transition.

Heura focuses its R&D on achieving holistic solutions to the challenges facing the world in terms of food. In his work, he is committed to vegetable proteins as a technology to face these challenges. The company represents a new generation of vegetable proteins based on legumes, using innovative techniques based on the high-moisture extrusion process and achieving such meaty textures that even butchers and renowned chefs think they eat meat when they try it

It is estimated that by 2040, 60% of the meat we will consume will not be of animal origin.

The macro trends of population growth and global food demand, combined with greater sensitivities towards sustainability, animal welfare and health, will pose great challenges that will make us rethink what we eat and how we produce it. 

In this sense, from ACCION - Generalitat de Catalunya - we promote this session together with INNOVACC - the meat and alternative protein cluster, which aims to:

. Publicize these trends and the conclusions of the study: "Alternative protein as a driver of change in the food industry in Catalonia: mapping and analysis", prepared by the General Directorate of Industry of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

. The action plan promoted jointly by ACCION and the INNOVACC cluster

. Case studies of innovative Catalan companies with alternative protein

The practical cases are gathered in the program of activities under the theme ''The alternative protein to Catalonia"
