The Swiss brewery Doppelleu Boxer AG and the company Circular Food Solutions Switzerland AG plan to make a plant-based alternative to meat from by-products obtained from beer production. The product, which is described as a premium meat alternative, should hit supermarket shelves next year.

More than 5 million CHF will be invested in the construction of a factory in the Swiss city of Winterthur. The owners announce that it will be the most advanced facility in the world for the processing of used grains.

It is a continuation of the process that began in 2015 when the by-products of the brewery were turned into animal feed. But now we will get a protein-rich product that can be used as a vegetable substitute for meat.

On product development, the owners of the brewery collaborated with leading Swiss meat processors. Production will begin next year, and the plan is to process several hundred tons of used grains annually. The product, which will be made 100% of Swiss raw materials, should be on the market by the end of the year.
