Danisco India to produce enzyme blends for textiles & other sectors

With an investment of USD 6 million, Danisco is opening up two new separate manufacturing units for functional systems and for enzymes to serve South-Asian customers.

The investment consists of manufacturing plants, laboratories and offices and will employ additional 20 people in India. The laboratories will provide dedicated and tailor-made support to our local customers and deliver products specific to the needs of the Indian industries.

'The SAARC region has been showing sustainable double-digit growth in Danisco, and the new functional systems plant will give us an edge to become one of the first international functional systems plants in the region.

This latest investment will strengthen our presence and commitment as a serious player in the region,' says Anders Wilhjelm, Executive Vice President of Gums & Systems in Danisco.

India, being the largest milk producer in the world with an annual production of more than 100 million tones and a growth rate of 3.8%, has a huge potential for value-added dairy products; the functional systems plant will initially produce blends for the ice cream market and will then move on to other dairy products.

'India is an important growth market to Gums & Systems. It's exciting to witness a market of 1 billion consumers experiencing good economic growth. As an ingredient leader we want to be at the forefront of this development and assist the Indian food industry in this growth story,' says Anders Wilhjelm.
