Cargill opens first food innovation centre in Singapore
Cargill has recently opened its first innovation centre in Singapore that aims to address nutrition and food safety needs of its customers. This new centre will employ 20 scientists by the end of 2019.
The new centre not only helps its customers in the Asia Pacific region to anticipate market forces and shifting consumer values around tastes, but also connects them to a global network of 10 other innovation centres and 2,000 food scientists.
Cargill global starches, sweeteners and texturisers business President Peter Van Deursen said, “Consumers in Asia Pacific want healthy and nutritious food and drinks but do not want to compromise on taste, quality and affordability. Our new innovation centre in Singapore will allow us to collaborate more closely with our customers in this region to create and reformulate products that better suit these changing consumer trends.”
In the Asia Pacific, Cargill already operates 2 innovation centres in Beijing and Shanghai. Singapore will be the 3rd centre. During the opening ceremony, the company held a range of events that included an experiential tour and sampling of products, such as healthier chilli sauces with natural sweeteners, yoghurt drinks with fruit and vegetable extracts.
Earlier in April, Cargill announced plans to expand the capacity of its Songyuan corn processing facility in Jilin province, China, with an investment of US$112 million.
