US supplier of applied protein sciences Proliant and Trega Foods, latterly known as Weyauwega Milk Products, a manufacturer of cheese and dairy-based ingredients, this week announced a joint venture for the production, sales and marketing of whey proteinisolates.
According to the two companies the joint venture unites Proliant's worldwide sales, marketing, research & development and application research with Trega Foods' manufacturing capabilities.
In 1991, Proliant extended its line of protein products to include dairy proteins thanks to a joint venture with the Hilmar Cheese company.
"The joint venture with Trega Foods is a way for Proliant's Dairy Ingredients Division to extend and build upon the success of our existing dairy protein business with Hilmar Cheese company, offering additional dairy ingredients and exciting, new, proprietary manufacturing capabilities.
We look forward to our opportunities with both of our strategic partners, Trega Foods and Hilmar Cheese company," commented Chris Snyder, executive vice president, Proliant Dairy Ingredients division.
Proliant's Dairy Ingredients Division provides speciality dairy proteins to the food industry.
