This Centre will support our global customers who are expanding their footprint in the region, whilst bringing the benefits of our global technologies to local food and beverage producers – supporting indigenous industry development.”

He adds: “The Centre will allow our commercial teams to better collaborate with customers in the region and we are confident that it will be a key differentiator in meeting the product development needs of our customers.”
