CP Kelco on track to expand biogums capacity at US, China facilities

CP Kelco says it has made extensive progress in expanding biogums production capacity at two facilities: Okmulgee in the US state of Oklahoma and Wulian, China.

In 2020, the first phase of this expansion was completed at Wulian, adding the capability to produce high acyl gellan gum and increasing overall plant production capacity by 30%.

CP Kelco plans to add low acyl (LA) gellan gum production capability at this facility in 2023.

The US firm is also scheduled to complete an expansion of 40% in production capacity in 2023 at its plant in Okmulgee.

“We remain committed to serving our customers worldwide and supporting their growth plans, particularly as the market trends and consumer demands continue to evolve and point toward formulating with nature-based, clean label-friendly and sustainably produced ingredients,” said CP Kelco president Didier Viala.

“The expansion of our biogums capacity enables us to more effectively collaborate with our customers in developing innovative food, beverage, personal care, home care and other products for consumers,” he added.
