Our mission

A project of growth

The results of the association of our two shareholders, Terrena and Sofiproteol, INVEJA has a strong development ambition to become a leading player in the market.

In its development, we rely on the complementary business know-how of 3 production sites, based in France (Haute-Goualine – 44 and Martigné-Ferchaud – 35) and in the Netherlands (Twello). This represents a turnover of around €20 million and 50 passionate employees.

This history of INVEJA is the combination of LIVRAC – a specialist in plant-based ingredient mixes -, LUP’INGREDIENTS – a European lupin expert – and FRANK FOOD PRODUCTS – a key European player in the processing of soya, lupin and ingredients.

Between the three of us, we have more than 250 years of expertise dedicated to plants!

Our core values are rooted in the land and the passion of our teams who reveal the potential of plant resources while ensuring food quality and safety.

Our name INVEJA sums up our missions: to invent plant-based ingredients and our know-how within the TERRENA cooperative group. We create solutions based on plant-derived ingredients and we are developing our expertise in the sector as part of the New Agriculture promoted by TERRENA.

INVEJA solutions based on food ingredients of plant origin (lupin, wheat, millet, soy, quinoa and other vegetable protein sources) are particularly used in bread/cake/pastry, beverages, dairy substitutes, meat/fish substitutes, dietetic/sportive food and cosmetics.

What do we do?

We propose to accompany you in choosing the best response to your needs, based on an offer of ingredients and solutions:

This offer is constantly evolving as we explore new plant sectors and new outlets.

Based on these plant resources, we design solutions adapted to consumers expectations and shaped by environmental, economic and societal issues. We are committed to the long term by ensuring proximity and reliability.

INVEJA tomorrow is what we will make of it together: teams of committed men and women, proud of their products, focused on you and your needs, attentive to markets and consumer trends and driven by a spirit of innovation.

 

Our values

We work in a relationship of trust with you thanks to our sincerity and truthfulness. We move forward together with your R&D, marketing and production teams and create the king between the farmer, the industry and the consumer. Our collaboration is based on innovation and proactivity: our vocation is to help you to develop products and solutions that suit you.

Nothing would be possible without a very solid quality base anchored in our working methods: our three production sites have been FSSC22000 certified for many years and also display additional certifications: organic, kosher, Riskplaza, SKAL, NOP, GMP + and Valid IT.
