Jungbunzlauer expands Citrics plant in Canada

Jungbunzlauer has decided to embark on a further expansion of the existing Citrics plant in Port Colborne, Canada.

This decision comes as a response to a consistently strong and growing global demand for citric acid and citrates as functional and bio-based ingredients in products ranging from food, beverages, detergents and industrial applications, driven by customers looking for safe and biodegradable products coming from sustainable production plants.

The Port Colborne plant already has an excellent production infrastructure and a fully vertically integrated raw material supply chain, with an adjacent corn wet milling plant. We can build on our long experience in the fermentation industry combining state-of-the-art processes and manufacturing technology, and a well-developed sustainability policy.

The expansion process will take approximately one year and will further enhance our competitive position for citric acid, sodium citrate and potassium citrate, servicing customers with high quality products in North and Latin America.
