Cargill, the US-based food and agriculture group, has made a significant investment in its liquid flavour blending plant at its production facility in Grasse, France. The redevelopment has resulted in increased efficiencies in production flow.

The newly-designed plant, which will be opened officially on 29th April, offers improved flexibility for customers, as well as ensuring consistent, high quality product delivery.

The plant has been redesigned to enable component materials for each bespoke flavour to be collated in ‘one pass’. New technology, including intelligent mobile recipe weighing stations, an automated dosing robot and paternoster system for compounders, means that production is now faster and ensures that repeat flavour specifications are accurate and consistent every time.

“This is a significant redevelopment for Grasse and underlines our commitment to growing our share of the flavours market,” says Leon Berndsen, operations director for Cargill Flavor Systems. “Coinciding with the investment, we have achieved FSSC 22000 certification, assuring customers of our dedication to food safety and quality and our rigorous staff training programme.”

Cargill’s Grasse plant produces flavour chemicals, natural extracts and liquid flavours as well as powder blending. It is best known for production of ‘brown note’ flavours, such as cocoa and vanilla, for a range of applications, particularly in the beverage and dairy sectors.

Cargill Flavor Systems produces flavours, flavour ingredients and fruit-based blends and compounds for the food and beverage industry across a wide range of applications. Its flavour expertise spans the beverage, dairy, savoury and sweet categories.

The business has production facilities in EMEA, North America and Asia. In Europe, Cargill produces flavours in Runcorn in the UK and in Grasse in the south of France. Fruit juice blending and compounding take place in Amsterdam. There are application centres in all areas of the world, including a beverage centre in Amsterdam and a dairy application centre in Baupte, France.
