11 Jun 2013 | A region on the move, Health Nutrition
A major investment for Ingredia as it targets new markets. A leading player in dairy processing, the company is very well positioned in the Special Nutrition segment, a key theme at the Nutrition Health Longevity competitive cluster.
28 Million Euros Invested
A subsidiary of the La Prospérité Fermière dairy co-op (1,800 members), Ingredia specialises in the development, production and marketing of dairy ingredients. The company will invest €28M in 2013 to create a new drying tower at its plant in Saint-Pol-sur-Ternoise. This will strengthen its capacity for processing milk into dairy ingredients. The new equipment, which will go into service at the end of the year, will also position it in new markets. The objective is to produce ingredients with higher value added that will be used in Special Nutrition (infants, athletes, seniors and clinical).
A stakeholder fully involved in the Nutrition Health Longevity cluster
Beyond this investment, which confirms Ingredia's determination to pursue its growth in Lille Region and more specifically in nutritional innovation, Ingredia has actively invested since its inception in the NHL (Nutrition Health longevity) competitive cluster; its research director is the vice president of the cluster.
