ST. LOUIS — The Solae Co. and Henan Luohe Shineway Industry Group announced plans for a new isolated soy protein manufacturing facility in Luohe City, China. The announcement builds on the four-year partnership between Solae, a soy ingredient innovator, and Henan Luohe, China’s largest meat processor.
The building will employ 200 specialized workers who will manufacture a high-quality, dry soy protein. The facility allows Henan Luohe Shineway to expand its local manufacturing base while enabling the availability of higher, more functional soy proteins in China.
"Soy protein can improve meat products’ nutrition quality, and make the meat protein combined with vegetable protein perfectly," said Wan Long, president of Shineway Group. "Partnered with Solae strategically, Shineway can offer both animal protein and vegetable protein, completely meeting consumers’ health and nutrition needs."
