Jorge López, the operations director at Zyrcular Foods, spoke yesterday at a roundtable discussion on the growth challenges of the plant-based sector. The Spanish Association of Plant-Based Products and Beverages (Vegetales) and other experts presented Spain’s first open-access alt protein plant project, supported by the Government of Catalonia. 

During the discussion, López emphasized the importance of industrial support and regulations to ensure product quality and facilitate product distribution.

“As developers of meat analogs, we are still in an early stage, so there is a long road ahead; researching and analyzing what has better acceptance among consumers, as well as moving towards higher production volumes to achieve more competitive prices,” López said at the discussion.
