Sweden: Preservatives Perstorp to Invest in Global Feed & Food Production
Perstorp announced a multi-million investment in its Feed & Food Business Area. The goal was to boost next generation solutions for gut health and preservation, the company said.
Malmö/Sweden — To ensure global availability Perstorp Feed & Food will establish new production units in Asia and the Americas. This way the company could offer a faster, more robust and flexible supply chain, Mann argues. By strategically strengthening and expanding Feed & Food the supplier could keep offering next generation solutions all around the world. Feed & Food is doubling the number of employees in R&D, regulatory affairs, supply chain, operations, marketing and sales. The plant in Waspik, the Netherlands will be the centre of the Business Area. An investment program has been greenlit for the site to increase office space, laboratories and production capacity.
Investing in Feed & Food was a society driven decision, explained Executive Vice president Roger Mann. Growing world population and increasing protein consumption required next generation solutions. Taking ownership of their own health was a trend he sees worldwide. People wanted to know what is on their plate, how their food is made, how the animals were treated and if they were raised antibiotic free.
