Biorigin, Brazilian producer of natural ingredients for foods and animal feeds, began expansion of its unit located in Quatá, Brazil, aiming at doubling its production capacity in 2014.
The US$120 million investment to expand the plant includes plans for the Fermentation, Pure Culture, Autolysis and Drying sectors.
According to Mario Steinmetz, Biorigin's general director: "This investment will allow Biorigin to continue its process of sustainable growth in the market of food and feed ingredients, as well as to innovate in products and services, as we have done during the last 10 years.
"This expansion initiative was brought about by positive market perspectives and by health and wellness market trends of an increasing search for natural ingredients. Moreover, we have a production model that allows the traceability of the ingredients applied. In addition, we use renewable energy sources that supply the requirements of sustainability," said Steinmetz.
