Our mission

INVEJA was born in 2015 from the merger between LIVRAC, a specialist in plant-based ingredient mixes, and LUP’INGREDIENTS, the European lupin expert, two activities of the TERRENA cooperative group. In 2017, FRANK FOOD PRODUCTS joined INVEJA as an expert in soy and lupin processing and specialty ingredients.

The union is our strength. We have more than 250 years of experience in the field of plant-based products! Our expertise and know-how are based on the complementarity of three production sites in France (Haute-Goulaine and Martigné-Ferchaud) and the Netherlands (Twello). Together, we have more than 50 enthusiastic employees and a turnover of around €20M.

Our name, INVEJA, sums up our mission: inventing plant-based ingredients. INVEJA creates solutions from plant-based ingredients: lupin, wheat, millet, soy, quinoa, and other plant-based protein sources. And this for a wide range of applications: bakery, pastry, drinks, dairy substitutes, meat substitutes, fish, diet/sports food, cosmetics…

INVEJA is positioned as a leading player in the market. Our ambition is to help you develop products and solutions that are tailored to your needs.

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 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 evolves and adapts as we explore new plant channels and new outlets thanks to our investments in R&D.

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

INVEJA shares common values with the TERRENA cooperative group: the desire to invent solutions for the future that guarantee product quality, traceability, and safety, while ensuring the protection of the environment and the well-being of our employees. Our method: to move forward together with your R&D, marketing, and production teams and to act as a link between the farmer, the industry, and the consumer. Innovation, proximity, reliability, and proactivity are our commitments.

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.
