The ribbon cutting ceremony took place on June 29, 2022. EverGrain now has a full-scale production facility on the Anheuser-Busch campus.
EverGrain, a sustainable ingredient company backed by AB InBev (St. Louis, MO) is now fully operation with the opening of a full-scale production facility. The company broke ground in March 2021 to renovate the historical Stockhouse 10 landmark on the Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery Campus, supported by a $100 million investment from Anheuser-Busch. At this facility, EverGain will employ its proprietary upcycling process to transform barley used in the brewing process into nutritious and sustainable protein ingredients that can be used in foods and beverages.
“At Anheuser-Busch we approach sustainability with an innovative mindset so that we can integrate cutting-edge solutions throughout our supply chain. This makes operating sustainably a commitment, not just a priority, and it leverages the power of our network to solve important challenges,” said Brendan Whitworth, CEO of Anheuser-Busch, in a press release. “EverGrain is one of the standout examples of this commitment, helping achieve a more sustainable food chain while making a major impact through job creation and investment in St. Louis.”
“We started our journey in 2013, long before upcycling was a trend, with the goal of unlocking every grain of potential in our barley to have a positive impact on people and the planet,” said Gregory Belt, EverGrain CEO. “This new commercial facility in St. Louis is a significant milestone in our journey to transform spent barley at scale into one of the world’s most sustainable, accessible, plentiful sources of plant-based protein.”
EverGrain’s ingredient EverPro is a barley protein that is Upcycled Certified and Non-GMO Project Verified.
