Givaudan, Mista and Bühler have announced the opening of a new extrusion hub at the Mista Innovation Center in San Francisco, US.


The new facility enhances Mista’s capabilities for food innovation and underscores Givaudan’s and Bühler’s commitment to transforming the food system.


Givaudan and Bühler’s collaboration provides companies with the chance to conduct product development trials for extruded products. The hub features a 30mm twin-screw Bühler extruder capable of high-moisture extrusion for plant-based meat and low moisture-extrusion for snacks and cereals.


According to the company, results obtained at the facility are applicable to full-scale production equipment, unlike smaller benchtop extruders. With an output of up to 50kg per hour, companies can explore new product development possibilities.


Fabio Campanile, global head of science and technology at Givaudan Taste & Wellbeing, said: “Adding extrusion capabilities at Mista expands our vast innovation network and further demonstrates our commitment to the alternative protein space. We believe that by working together and leveraging our collective expertise, we can continue driving the development of the food industry to deliver sustainable and delicious food experiences for consumers around the world.”


Ian Roberts, CTO at Bühler, commented: “Collaboration is key to building a sustainable future for food with the goal of feeding the expected 10 billion world inhabitants by the year 2050. The Mista facility demonstrates that these collaborations provide real results. The partnership with Mista, Givaudan and Bühler is providing a world-class technology platform for food innovators to develop and scale the protein sources that will sustainably nourish the world’s growing population,”


Scott May, founder and head of Mista, added: “Mista acts as a catalyst for companies to discover, integrate and evolve new ways of working that will help power their innovation engine and accelerate the transformation of the food system. Through the nodal network, unique collaborations, access to new technologies and domain expertise, Mista empowers companies to re-imagine innovation and drive positive change for companies and the industry."


May concluded: "We are confident the addition of extrusion capabilities will help generate and accelerate many of the great-tasting food solutions needed to ensure a sustainable food future."
