About Alpro Foundation
Alpro Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation that was founded in 1996 in order to support scientific research into nutrition and to promote knowledge and awareness of plant-based nutrition, health and sustainability. Various resources for academics, health professionals and students can be found on their website

About Fuji Foundation for Protein Research
Fuji Foundation for Protein Research was established to support soy protein research and thereby contribute to human health, nutrition and food sustainability.
The Fuji Oil Group established The Research Committee of Soy Protein Nutrition in 1979 in Japan to advance both basic research and applications knowledge relating to soy. This Committee was the forerunner of the Fuji Foundation for Protein Research, a Japan-registered charity that promotes research on plant protein, in particular soy.
Since 1991, the Foundation has made grants to Japan-based research groups investigating plant protein in 4 subject areas:

  • Nutrition & health
  • Functionality
  • Plant cultivation
  • Food culture

To date, these awards the focus has been on soy protein research. However, the Foundation plans to expand its activities to other plant proteins and offer grants to overseas researchers from 2023 onwards. English language website
