US chemical company DuPont has opened a new probiotic blending and packaging facility in Beijing, China, to serve dietary supplement and food and beverage global customers with specific focus on China and the Asia Pacific region.
Representing DuPont Nutrition & Health’s first step in packaging probiotics into ready-to-market formats, the new facility also forms part of the company’s global multi-year capacity expansion program for cultures and probiotics in the US, Europe and China.
DuPont Nutrition & Health Health and Protection vice president Fabienne Saadane-Oaks said: "As we continue to support the world’s growing population, this expansion allows us to custom blend and package high-quality probiotic products for our customers in the fast-growing dietary supplement and food and beverage industries close to our customers, where we want to be."
Ensuring customers of highest food safety and quality standard, the new facility will also provide assistance in sourcing ready-to-market probiotic formulations comprising Danisco HOWARU premium and FloraFIT custom probiotic brands.
DuPont currently operates eight sites in China.
