Cargill, AKV Langholt invest in Danish potato starch production plant

Published 30 January 2018

Cargill and AKV Langholt, its Danish potato starch partner, are investing $22.5m in a new potato starch production unit at their Langholt plant in Denmark.

Potato starches produced at the new facility expand Cargill’s SimPure portfolio of functional native starches. SimPure starches feature ingredients from a variety of botanical sources, providing food and beverage manufacturers access to the recognizable, simple ingredients consumers demand, while achieving necessary process tolerance, retail shelf life and storage ability.

The plant expects to start operations in mid-2018.

Cargill global food starch leader Simon Waters said: “This investment demonstrates Cargill’s commitment to providing our food manufacturing customers the functional native starches they need to meet the demand of today’s label-conscious consumers.

“Consumer demand for products made with familiar, trusted ingredients is increasing rapidly,” said Waters. “However, these ingredients must also stand up to the diverse processing conditions of modern processing. We understand these competing needs and are using state-of-the-art processing techniques make label-friendly starch solutions a reality.”

This latest investment broadens Cargill’s starch portfolio, which includes native, functional native and modified starches.

Each starch line is designed to enhance the texture and stability of everyday foods including batters and coatings, pudding powders, dry mix soups and sauces, processed meat, bakery mixes, ready meals, creamy spreads and fillings, salad dressings and pet foods.
