MaGie Creations

Construction of my factory will start next year and we will open in 2025. A dream come true!

MaGie Creations upcycles beer grain into an ingredient that can be used for food production: PowerFlour. Beer grain is a fiber and protein-rich barley fraction that remains after brewing beer. Madeleine Gielens is the founder of MaGie Creations. We just introduced a cereal bar and we expect to bring a cracker to market soon. We introduced the Brewlicious brand to make the consumer aware of the theme of beer grain, which is something new that doesn’t immediately resonate with most people. Madelein about participatin Circular Factory: “Before the end of this year, the financing of my factory will be completed, construction will start next year and we will open in 2025. A dream come true. The factory is built in a circular manner and is fossil-free. Circular Factory offers pragmatic support in the preparation of the scale-up phase. What I really liked is that they could think along from practical experience about how I could take the next steps needed to grow my business.”
