Innovation during a transition can be difficult. Sometimes challenges can be too complicated to tackle on your own. The Protein Community (TPC) is a safe environment where you can partner up on your ideas and find inspiration from each other. We do this by providing the right support and by creating a mix of cross-sectoral organisations working on the same topic.

The Protein Community is the biggest protein community from The Netherlands. Worldwide, we have more than 100 TPC partners. As TPC partner, you’ll enjoy many benefits, such as matchmaking services with inspiring partners, capital, facilities, and in-depth events. Are you part of The Protein Community yet?

Matchmaking services

Is your business focused on plant proteins and do you want your business to develop, scale up or market your business idea? The Protein Community connects you to the right partners, capital, unique facilities which will accelerate your business.

Network events and in-depth webinars

Each year, four live events are organised specifically for our TPC partners. During the events, the latest developments within the plant protein market are discussed, partners share their knowledge and a lot of time is set aside for networking. In addition, webinars are given where an even deeper dive is taken into the world of plant proteins.
