Growth in Ingredient Suppliers
Gold Medal: Protient Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of membrane filtered whey, soy, and milk proteins, for exceeding $90 million in FY2005 sales, up 38% from 2004. The company attributed its success to hard work, expanded sales distribution channels and penetration into untapped international markets, and said it expects the rapid growth to continue into 2006. Protient expanded its membrane processing technology enabling it to introduce milk protein concentrates and isolates. It also acquired three new manufacturing facilities in 2005, leading to improved utilization of raw materials and lower operating costs.
