ValproMic is a collaboration between Agristo, Clarebout and Avecom.

ValProMic wants to supply a solution for Food processing companies, in which diluted process streams which are otherwise lost or even a cost, are upgraded to valuable microbial protein (SCP - single cell protein).

Since 1986 Agristo has developed into a world player for the development and production of frozen potato products. As a Belgian company with headquarters in Harelbeke and more production units in Nazareth, Wielsbeke, Tilburg (The Netherlands), Agristo specializes in offering an extremely wide range of fries and derived potato products, made to measure for each client.

Clarebout has become one of the most important players in the world in the field of frozen potato products for private labels. They have been developing and producing products in ultramodern production units, fully customized to the customers’ requirements, since 1988. Clarebout focuses on the highest possible customer satisfaction by offering products that meet the strictest quality and food safety standards and by focusing on innovation in all areas.

The concept


Diluted process streams of food procesing companies which are now often a cost, are upgraded by means of a patented aerobic fermentation process.

With this process and product, ValProMic wants to offer a sustainable, affordable and locally produced alternative for protein feed which is now either unsustainable produced or limited in supply.
