Glucose plant for Jungbunzlauer Austria

Jungbunzlauer will build a corn glucose plant adjacent to its citric acid and xanthan gum facilities in Pernhofen, Austria.

The plant shall cover an important portion of Pernhofen’s raw material needs. It will enable Jungbunzlauer Austria to use corn from the region as well as from the neighbouring countries and to manufacture a tailor-made corn syrup for its fermentation. Consequently, the raw material back-integration will expand the company’s sourcing flexibility.

This investment underlines Jungbunzlauer’s determination to serve the growing needs of its customers and markets and to further strengthen its position as the world's leading supplier of citric acid. We continue to invest considerable efforts and amounts to maintain quality, reliability and service at the highest level according to our principle "Better, Faster, Closer", while at the same time using all means to keep production costs at competitive levels.

Fact is: Jungbunzlauer is always ready to supply you with citric acid, xanthan gum and with all of its specialty products swiftly and flexibly!
