IMCD opens food laboratory in Sweden

Wednesday, 23 November, 2011

IMCD Nordic, part of the IMCD Group, has announced the opening of a food and nutrition laboratory in Malmö, Sweden.

It will provide formulation support to the Nordic food and nutrition customers and is an extension of the activities carried out at the IMCD Food & Nutrition Technical Centre in Mechelen, Belgium.

The opening of this new laboratory is part of the Food & Nutrition Business Group’s market segment approach whereby they strive to provide segment specific solutions to customers in local markets. It will combine functional ingredient and processing advice, allowing the team to bring ready-to-use tools to the market.

“By doing so, IMCD is further strengthening our formulation approach and enhancing IMCD’s ability to adequately evaluate the food and nutrition ingredients and processes which can contribute to a successful end formulation for our Nordic customer base,” explains Managing Director IMCD Nordic, Didrik von Porat.

“Our Malmö laboratory will be supported by our technical centre in Mechelen in delivering the local application and formulation support with special focus on key Nordic applications and recipes,” adds Food & Nutrition Director IMCD Group Gökhan Oran.

As with the other IMCD laboratories, the team plans to hold seminars and workshops at the laboratory. This provides IMCD’s supply partners with an opportunity to introduce new products to the market and for customers to bring forward their specific formulation requirements.

IMCD expects that the new laboratory and its activities will enhance processing insights, with the right functional ingredients, to balanced recipes and processing parameters.

The food and nutrition laboratory in Malmö is the ninth one for the IMCD Group.
