Free Online Discussion: A Go-To-Market Story with EverGrain Ingredients



Free online discussion: an EverGrain Ingredients go-to-market story, PLUS $10,000 and support to develop plant based protein processing innovations

Don’t just think about changing the food system for the better – learn how to get the support to do it.

Next Wednesday, meet and learn from Jacqui Hochreiter of EverGrain Ingredients and how she and her team are creating new plant based protein ingredients for products from one side of the grocery store to the other as they achieve scale.


Just because you have a passion, a startup, or the tech for more sustainable plant based alternatives to animal based food ingredients doesn't mean manufacturers and consumers will follow. How can you achieve scale beyond just hoping for success?


Jacqui Hochreiter is leading the go-to-market strategy for EverGrain Ingredients as they build and serve demand for plant based ingredients across the grocery store. She'll share her experience on identifying and focusing on the most promising opportunities, building the relationships that lead to demand and sales, and scaling up production to match demand. If you're trying to grow a plant based protein ingredient processing company, you won't want to miss what Jacqui has to share!


We’ll also talk about deciding to be an entrepreneur, supply chains, processing, regulatory approval, GTM strategies, and building an impactful business. We’ll have time for you to meet PBP processing peers from around the world and we’ll include information on how you can apply for a $10,000 (USD) grant from the Yield Lab Institute’s GroundBreakers program to support and get visibility for your work.

Agenda (all times Central US Time):

  • 10:00am – Where the opportunity lies: the landscape for plant based protein processing innovators (Dan Reus of the Yield Lab Institute’s GroundBreakers program)

  • 10:10am – Going to Market with the Plant Based Trend - Jacqui Hochreiter of EverGrain Ingredients

  • 10:30am – Q&A with Jacqui Hochreiter

  • 10:40am – How to apply for our $10,000 grant for a plant based innovator

  • 10:45-11:15am – Speed Networking – make connections with plant based ingredient innovation peers from around the world



Through GroundBreakers and our members, we’ve identified innovators working in areas like low temperature, side stream valorization, electrospinning, off flavor mitigation, enzymatic innovations, fat/lipid innovation, 3D printing, texture innovation, and more for crops like soy, other pulses/legumes, sunflower, rapeseed, and many others to address this opportunity.

One of these innovators will get cash and support to develop their work. Will it be you or someone you know? Join us as we explore opportunities and support for innovators like yourself.

EverGrain Ingredients and GroundBreakers are both based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA where an increasingly large collection of plant based protein companies are based. Learn more about EverGrain Ingredients here and GroundBreakers here.
