CP Kelco Expands in Brazil

February 14, 2014

Said to increase capacity by 30% at the site.

Extending a focused effort to meet the fast-growing global demand for pectin, CP Kelco plans for a "significant investment"
to expand its manufacturing facility in Limeira, Brazil, according to the company.
 

Approved in late 2013 by both the CP Kelco Management Board and the Board of its parent company, J.M. Huber Corporation, this latest investment is projected to increase capacity by 30%  at Limeira. This announcement follows other recent projects underway in Limeira and at CP Kelco’s manufacturing facility in Lille Skensved, Denmark. These earlier projects are set to conclude and become fully operational in 2015.
 

“As a leader in pectin technology, we see tremendous opportunity in this market space,” said Susanne Sörgel, strategic platform director for CP Kelco’s Pectin product line. “The additional capacity will allow us to meet the growing demand for pectin in application segments such as beverages, confectionery and dairy products.”
 

According to Sörgel, the recent series of investments in production capacity signals CP Kelco’s strong commitment to advancing pectin’s use as a high performance ingredient in foods and beverages, both in developed economies and emerging markets. “These projects will combine to ensure that CP Kelco can support its customers’ growth well into the future,” Sörgel said.
