ATLANTA, Georgia, USA, February 14, 2014 — Extending a focused effort to meet the fastgrowing
global demand for pectin, CP Kelco has announced plans for a significant investment to
expand its manufacturing facility in Limeira, Brazil.
Approved in late 2013 by both the CP Kelco Management Board and the Board of its parent
company, J.M. Huber Corporation, this latest investment is projected to increase capacity by 30
percent at Limeira. This announcement follows other recent projects underway in Limeira and at
CP Kelco’s manufacturing facility in Lille Skensved, Denmark. These earlier projects are set to
conclude and become fully operational in 2015.
“As a leader in pectin technology, we see tremendous opportunity in this market space,” said
Susanne Sörgel, strategic platform director for CP Kelco’s Pectin product line. “The additional
capacity will allow us to meet the growing demand for pectin in application segments such as
beverages, confectionery and dairy products.”
According to Sörgel the recent series of investments in production capacity signals CP Kelco’s
strong commitment to advancing pectin’s use as a high performance ingredient in foods and
beverages, both in developed economies and emerging markets. “These projects will combine
to ensure that CP Kelco can support its customers’ growth well into the future,” Sörgel said.
