Company Profile:

Meelunie is a global supplier of plant-based ingredients. Our product range covers a wide variety of food and non-food applications, and includes trusted brands such as Windmill Potato Starch alongside an ever-growing assortment of organic products.

In 2022, Meelunie will be expanding its portfolio with, for example, fava isolate proteins produced in a brand-new Danish facility. These highly-innovative products are completely neutral in taste and color, making them ideal for a wide range of food applications. This will enable Meelunie to be a frontrunner in the protein transition to plant-based ingredients.

As well as our commitment to this transition, we believe sustainability adds value throughout our global processes by creating a positive impact within our industry, supply chains and communities.

We have offices across 5 continents and export to over 100 countries. But our added value goes far beyond that of a supplier. From risk management to multi-sourcing, quality assurance to tailor-made supply chains, we can draw on 150 years’ experience to develop comprehensive solutions designed to meet your specific needs.
