Cargill expands partnership with foodtech company Enough

Cargill and Enough are expanding their partnership to further develop nutritious and sustainable alternative meat and dairy solutions. Cargill has signed a commercial agreement to use and market Enough's Abunda protein and has also invested in the company’s Series C growth funding round. Abunda is grown by feeding fungi with sugars from sustainably sourced grain that is then fermented to create the mycoprotein, a complete food ingredient that contains essential amino acids and is high in dietary fibre. Abunda is produced through a zero-waste fermentation process, with Cargill’s glucose syrup as a main source. Enough and Cargill already have a relationship – Enough's 160,000 square foot production facility, built in 2022, is co-located alongside a Cargill facility in Sas van Gent, the Netherlands. Through the existing relationship, Cargill provides Enough with glucose syrup and utilities. With the extended strategic partnership, Cargill will leverage its portfolio of plant-based proteins, texturizers and fats, as well as its formulations and applications capabilities to co-create nutritious alt-protein foods containing Abunda mycoprotein. Enough will continue to benefit from Cargill’s global footprint and feedstock technology expertise to support it in scaling up in Europe and beyond.

Belgin Kose, managing director of Cargill Meat and Dairy Alternatives, said: “Cargill is strengthening its partnership with Enough because the world needs more protein that is grown more sustainably to keep pace with global population growth. Mycoprotein is an emerging ingredient with a disruptive role to play due to its many benefits including a meat-like texture, protein profile, scalability and sustainability.” Jim Laird Enough’s CEO added: “Expanding our partnership with Cargill is an exciting step to accelerate the great strides we’ve already made through the co-location of our Sas van Gent facility. The alternative protein market is a multi-billion-dollar opportunity, and efficiency will come from collaboration with partners such as Cargill to leverage existing demand and supply chain to gain scale.”
