Europe: Cargill, partner invest in Danish potato starch plant

SHARE

Cargill and its Danish potato starch partner, AKV Langholt AmbA, are investing US$22.5 million in a new potato starch production unit at their Langholt facility in Denmark.

Potato starches produced at the new facility expand Cargill’s SimPure portfolio of functional native starches.

SimPure starches feature ingredients from a variety of botanical sources, providing food and beverage manufacturers access to the recognizable, simple ingredients consumers demand, while achieving necessary process tolerance, retail shelf life and storage ability.

Each starch line is designed to enhance the texture and stability of everyday foods including batters and coatings, pudding powders, dry mix soups and sauces, processed meat, bakery mixes, ready meals, creamy spreads and fillings, salad dressings and pet foods.
