Cargill and its Danish potato starch partner AKV Langholt plan to open the unit at their joint production facility, near Aalborg, later this year.
The facility will allow Cargill to expand its SimPure portfolio of functional native starches.
‘Demonstrates our commitment’
“This investment demonstrates our commitment to providing food manufacturers with the functional native starches they need to meet the demand of today’s label-conscious consumers,” said Simon Waters, global food starch leader at Cargill.
Cargill has also announced its intention to transfer from maize to wheat processing at its starches and sweeteners site in Krefeld, Germany.
The company said the transition would allow it to address an increasing demand for protein-rich foods.
