Fabalicious food for human beans!
Beanit is the world’s first plant-based protein product made from Nordic Fava beans. We source and produce in Finland, where the fava beans are superb thanks to our intensive bright summer and clean nature.
We are not trying to replicate meat – we simply want to make food that tastes so good that you don’t feel you are missing out on anything when making a sustainable choice. Our food is rich, fulfilling and delicious. Just enjoy the taste, and the rest will follow.

Fava Bean – Our Unique Ingredient
Broad bean, faba bean, horse bean… no matter what you want to call it, it certainly means some delicious, versatile and nutritious food.
We are proud to have been one of the first food companies to rediscover this great crop, which we refer to as the “new old food”. For us, the fava bean is the hero and centerpiece in everything that we do.
Beanit® is Produced in Our Own Facility
Our production site stands in rural landscape in the small town of Kauhava, in the Western Finland. This is where our workers do their magic and turn fava beans into delicious Beanit® products.
Our production facility holds the FSSC 22000 certificate for the highest standards in food safety and quality.
This is how we work
We’re constantly looking for new international partners on our journey to spread Finnish fava-deliciousness all over the world.
We are keen on cooperating with even more retailers, food service partners, independent agents… If you are eager on joining us in our international operations just drop us a line and we’ll figure out the best way to cooperate!
Grown under the Nordic Skies
Finland has excellent conditions for fava beans to grow. They turn out the best when spoilt with sunlight, plenty of clean water and warm but not hot temperatures. That’s pretty much Finnish summer with its nightless nights right there!
Our fava bean sourcing is 100% Finnish, and comes mainly from the farmers in the region around Kauhava, where our production facility is located.
Our unconventional owner
Does it sound unrealistic that the raison d’être for a company is to donate its profits to charity? Maybe, but our parent company Kavli just happens to be that way.
The trust that owns the Kavli corporation donates any profit remaining after business development expenses primarily to promoting women’s and children’s health, education, entrepreneurship and culture and research funding. Isn’t that quite something?
