LDC and Instanta open freeze-dried coffee facility in Vietnam

Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) and coffee brand Instanta have jointly launched ILD Coffee Vietnam, a freeze-dried instant coffee facility located in Binh Duong province, Vietnam. The facility has an annual production capacity of 5,600 metric tons of freeze-dried instant coffee. It was built to address the increasing global demand for instant coffee, particularly the premium freeze-dried variety. The site's product range is designed to cater to consumer preferences across established markets, such as Europe and emerging markets in Asia. The new plant uses advanced extraction and freeze-drying technology, and it holds certifications such as FSSC 22000 and SMETA audits, showcasing both companies' commitment to safety. Aligning with the partners' sustainability pledge in coffee production and distribution, the facility's equipment is designed to reduce its environmental impact. This includes a biomass boiler that utilises spent coffee grounds to generate steam. Ben Clarkson, LDC's global head of coffee, said: "This venture with Instanta supports our global strategy to diversify through more value-added products, reflects our ongoing commitment to Vietnam as a key market for LDC, and complements our existing global Robusta green coffee business, expanding our product portfolio to meet customers’ needs". "Leveraging our expertise in coffee sourcing in Vietnam and extensive global network, combined with Instanta's leadership in the instant coffee business, ILD Coffee Vietnam is well positioned for success."
