CP Kelco To Increase Pectin Production

June 25, 2013

Brazilian operation expanded by 30%.

The board of directors of CP Kelco has approved the first phase in a series of projects to expand its Brazilian pectin operation by 30%. The expansion project will significantly increase the facility’s capacity to produce grades of pectin with a sustainable new innovative technology leveraging the local cost-effective raw material sources.

Kelco says global pectin demand continues to exceed regional GDP rates as consumers in all markets demand natural, safe, high-quality food ingredients.

“Global pectin growth has rebounded for various reasons, and we are experiencing high rates of adoption in new product launches in both emerging and mature markets,” said Susanne Sörgel, marketing director for the product line.

CP Kelco offers a broad portfolio of pectin grades, including new patented forms, which provide higher functionality in solids and pH and the ability to create unique textures.
