Ojah: Pioneering Extrusion Technology for Irresistible Plant-Based Alternatives
Hailing from the Netherlands, Ojah emerged as a global player at Plant Based World Expo Europe 2023, showcasing innovative solutions that are reshaping the landscape of plant-based protein. Ojah is at the forefront of driving the global protein transition while making meaningful contributions to climate, health, and animal welfare.
Ojah offers comprehensive solutions tailored to various sectors, including Retail & Private Label, Food Manufacturers, and Food Service. The company envisions a world abundant with high-quality plant-based alternatives for meat and fish, making them irresistibly tasty, widely available, and accessible to all.
At the heart of Ojah’s success is their unique High Moisture Extrusion technology (HME), a game-changer since the company’s establishment in 2009. This technology allows Ojah to create a protein fiber that sets their products apart, delivering a remarkable bite and taste. With the largest HME production facility in Europe, Ojah is well-prepared to meet the growing demand for plant-based alternatives globally.
For Ojah, the key to driving the global protein transition is ensuring that consumers do not have to make concessions when choosing plant-based. Sustainability is a cornerstone of Ojah’s ethos. The company exclusively works with non-GMO, European-certified soy that is naturally rich in protein and widely available. By avoiding ingredients of animal origin and allergens like gluten, nuts, or milk, Ojah prioritizes the creation of healthy and sustainable products with competitive prices and scalability.
At Plant Based World Expo Europe 2023, Ojah left an impression with a standout product—a delectably seasoned, breaded plant-based chicken tender that captured the essence of meat without compromising on taste or texture.
Ojah is eager to connect with buyers from all corners of the industry, emphasizing that they do not sell products directly to consumers. Instead, they seek partnerships with businesses looking to develop high-quality plant-based protein products. The company’s participation in the international pavilion representing the Netherlands underscores the global nature of the plant-based movement and the growing marketplace for these foods around the world.
