ADM COCOA INCREASES PROCESSING CAPACITY IN SINGAPORE

ADM Cocoa has completed the expansion of its production capabilities at its cocoa processing facility in Singapore. The expansion, which involved the upgrading of existing equipment as well as the installation of new machinery, will increase the total output of cocoa products by about 17%.

The processing capacity will help ADM Cocoa to meet growing customer demand for its premium quality deZaan cocoa butter, cocoa powder and cocoa mass (liquor) across Asia. The Singapore site is also home to one of ADM Cocoa’s Advantage Centres, an R&D resource centre where customers work directly with ADM’s cocoa experts on innovative product developments. The facility also serves as a training centre, where customers can learn more about product applications, formulations and cocoa sustainability efforts undertaken by ADM Cocoa and other stakeholders.

“Consumer interest in cocoa and chocolate products is growing across Asia, with particularly strong demand in emerging markets such as China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines,” explains Yeong Chye, managing director, ADM Cocoa Asia. “We continue to enhance our deZaan range of cocoa ingredients to meet customer demand for innovative cocoa product solutions.

“The past year has seen a number of upgrades to our processing equipment and we are delighted to announce that the work is now complete. The increased processing capacity, paired with the technical support in our new Advantage Centre, will help us to better serve our customers in supporting their growth.”
