Due to fast growing world demand of plant-based food products, Letofin AS made a decision to make steps in development of its own plant-based product lines.
In January 2020 Letofin AS started close cooperation with TalTech (Tallinn University of Technology) to produce innovative plant-based products from sunflower seeds such as: beverages, proteins and butters.
First stage of the project is to make a trial recipe for of plant-based beverage and butter made from sunflower seeds and to be completed by 31/05/2021. This research is being supported by European Regional Development Fund. The first grant in amount of 3 984,00 EUR was confirmed by EAS on 31/12/2020.
In September 2021 Letofin AS applied for a second grant from European Regional Development Fund and got a positive feedback. The goal is to find the best taste, texture and recipe for plant based drink. The second stage should be completed by 31/05/2022. The amount of second grant is 28 945,00 EUR.
