Biorigin, a Brazilian multinational company that operates in the production of natural ingredients for human and animal nutrition, will start the expansion plan of its unit located in Louisville, United States, which will allow it to more than double its production capacity of the Bioenhance line, from natural flavour.
With investments of $3.5 million, the project will comprise, among other things, the purchase of a new fermenter that will start operating in the first semester of 2019.
According to César Martins, Biorigin’s Global Operations Manager: “The expansion project was elaborated with due care in order to reduce set-up in fermentation and to optimise the use of other industrial assets, therefore, increasing our production capacity of the Bioenhance line”.
This is the third expansion announced by the company since its foundation 15 years ago, totalling investments of around $200 million.
According to Mario Steinmetz, Biorigin’s General Manager: “These expansion initiatives were stimulated by the positive perspectives of the market, as well as by the trends related to health and well-being, which lead to an increasing search for natural ingredients, clean label, Non GMO”.
