Together we contribute to better nutrition and health

Do you make the difference?

In May 2022, BENEO, a leading manufacturer of functional ingredients, acquired Meatless. Meatless is a successful B2B supplier to the fast-growing vegetarian and vegan market, producing a broad portfolio of textured products used by major food processors. BENEO is a global market leader in functional food ingredients for humans and animals, with production sites in Germany, Belgium, Chile, Italy and the Netherlands. BENEO has a global distribution network in more than 75 countries and is part of the Südzucker Group, Europe’s largest sugar producer. The acquisition of Meatless was the next logical step to reaffirm BENEO’s commitment to strengthening its business with solutions for plant-based alternatives. Through a unique chain of expertise, BENEO offers customers advice and inspiration on new product ideas that support a healthy lifestyle in a holistic way.
