DuPont opens probiotics facility in China

Mary Page Bailey

DuPont (Wilmington, Del.; has launched production at its probiotic blending and packaging facility in China. The new site in Beijing represents DuPont Nutrition & Health’s first step in packaging probiotics into ready-to-market formats. Investment and capacity were not disclosed.
In 2011, DuPont purchased a food processing plant north of Beijing and converted it into the new probiotic blending and packaging site to serve dietary supplement and food and beverage customers globally. The investment is part of a global multi-year capacity expansion program for cultures and probiotics in the U.S., Europe and now in China.
The new facility will allow customers to source ready-to-market probiotic formulations. The probiotic formulations offer unique improvements for digestive and immune health and other well-being benefits for the dietary supplement, dairy and beverage markets. Probiotic cultures will be sourced from the company’s North American and European sites. The new facility in China will be able to custom blend the ingredients to meet the requirements of local customers.
