Frutarom to close German spice refining facility, expand nearby sites

Frutarom has said it will close its Loxstedt-Nesse spice refining facility in Germany and expand production at nearby sites.

The company said that expansion of the Loxstedt-Nesse site was not possible due to its location next to an area of domestic housing. It added that the majority of employees currently employed at the site would be reemployed
at its Sittensen site, among others. The Loxstedt-Nesse and Sittensen facilities are about 70 km apart.

“As a company, our main priority is to make sure that we have sufficient capacity to manufacture our products and guarantee their quality in the long term,” said commercial vice president at Frutarom Savory Solutions Nick Russell. “This will ensure that we are able to continue to deliver products of the high and standardized quality our customers are used to.”

In addition to investment in the Sittensen plant, the company said it would also optimize production at its Bramstadt facility and in its R&D centre in Holdorf.

“Our investment in Sittensen will enable us to create one of the most efficient spice refining facilities in Europe – on a par with our facility in Korntal -Münchingen,” Russell said.

“Additionally, we will invest heavily in our sales and research and development centre. This approach will ensure that our company remains future-oriented and able to provide our customers with tailored solutions whenever they need them.”

Frutarom said that building work at Sittensen and Bramsted was planned to start later this year.
