IMCD inaugurates pilot plant in Thailand
IMCD has inaugurated a new pilot plant for meat, seafood and plant-based analogues in Thailand, to better support customers in the Asia Pacific region.
IMCD’s food and nutrition business distributes speciality food ingredients and flavours, and also works with partners on trend-driven product formulation.
With the new facility in Bangkok, the company says that customers will benefit from ‘best-in-class’ equipment that will enable the swift development of complex ingredient formulations.
Customers will also reportedly have access to an experienced technical team with ‘in-depth’ regional knowledge, that can provide insights on local markets.
The pilot plant will provide a site for ingredients testing and co-creating products and will aim to reduce the development time for new solutions.
In 2018, IMCD opened a new food and nutrition application laboratory at its facility in Hürth, Germany, in a move to enhance its ability to support the technical needs of customers.
