Corbion has expanded its powdered vinegar production site in Gorinchem, the Netherlands, enhancing its ability to supply sustainable, clean-label solutions for food applications.
Corbion says that the strategic investment is intended to help ensure continuity and security of supply for Corbion customers who have embraced the company’s vinegar-based solutions as effective alternatives to synthetic ingredients.
The company’s Verdad range of solutions is based on vinegars, ferment blends, and other functional ingredients, enabling the production of consumer-friendly ingredient labelling while extending shelf life, improving yield and enhancing safety without sacrificing quality.
Ruud Peerbooms, senior vice-president of food at Corbion said: “Corbion’s powdered vinegar solutions are consistently proving highly effective in preserving safety and shelf life in a wide range of foods.
“They help manufacturers respond to consumers who prefer products with ingredients they understand. We want to continue leveraging our expertise in natural fermentation processes and developing even better ways to use vinegar’s potential as a natural preservative.
“Bringing much of our vinegar production in-house will allow us greater efficiency and control in doing that.”
