SINGAPORE: Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) has opened a cutting-edge flavours and ingredient creation, application, development and customer innovation centre at the Biopolis research hub in Singapore.

The opening of the 8,900-square foot (825-square meter) space was announced at a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB).

The Singapore innovation centre will serve as the gateway to consumers in Southeast Asia and beyond, and enable ADM to work closely with customers to create complete flavour and speciality ingredient solutions that meet consumer preferences for taste, nutrition, function and texture. It will be staffed by a team of food scientists, flavours and applications experts, along with sales, marketing and regulatory personnel.

The new innovation centre features a wide range of capabilities, including a food and flavour analytic lab; a beverage and dairy applications lab and pilot plant; a bakery and confectionery lab; a meat and savoury lab; a sweet and savoury creation lab; sensory evaluation facilities; and a customer innovation centre.

“Consumer tastes and preferences are changing, as people look to balance busy lifestyles with healthy eating habits. Our goal is to be the first-call ingredient and flavour experts for customers working to meet those consumer needs throughout Southeast Asia,” said Donald Chen, ADM’s president, Asia.

“Singapore is a critical hub of innovation and growth in the food and beverage world, and we are excited to leverage our technology, expertise and global scale to help Southeast Asian food and beverage customers remain at the forefront, and to offer job creation and talent development opportunities for scientific, technical, marketing and regulatory professionals in the food and beverage industries,” added Chen.

“This new facility is yet another important step as we continue to enhance our portfolio and our capabilities around the globe. Consumers are looking for new, innovative foods and beverages, and ADM continues to invest to ensure that we are the go-to solution providers for clean labels, sustainable ingredients and great taste,” said Vince Macciocchi, president of ADM’s wild flavours and speciality ingredients business.
