CP Kelco Expands Pectin Capacity in Denmark

LILLE SKENSVED, DenmarkCP Kelco has allocated $10.7 million into additional expansion of its pectin plant in Lille Skensved. The expansion of the worlds largest pectin plant is the next phase after an initial $2.7 million investment to ready the infrastructure for additional expansions.

The expansion is necessary to meet the increased demand for high-quality GENU® amidated grades of pectin, which is used broadly in the food industry for products, such as low-sugar and sugar-free jams, fruit preparations for yogurt, and thermo-reversible bakery glazes.

GENU pectin continues to show good market growth due to its functionality in fruit and yoghurt products, where it enables production of jams and fruit spreads with a low-sugar and high-fruit content," states Susanne Sörgel, Strategic Platform Director for Pectin.

In addition to the Lille Skensved pectin plant, CP Kelco also produces pectin in Germany and Brazil. The expansion project is expected to be completed in June 2014.
