Frank is one of the first movers in plant-based proteins. In 2009, he co-founded Ojah with the ambition to inspire people around the globe to consume plant proteins. By texturizing plant proteins by high moisture extrusion processing, Ojah created a revolutionary vegetable meat-like substitute with a particular ‘bite’ and texture, more juicy than chicken and more tender than pork. The dream of Ojah’s founders came through, alternative proteins have become indispensable. Ojah itself has shown a strong international growth since its foundation. To some degree thanks to pitching at F&A Next 2016, when Frank met Belgian investor Korys which supported Ojah to a next level.
