STONEY CREEK, CANADA: Bartek Ingredients Inc has successfully completed a 4,000 ton/year capacity increase of its malic acid production facilities. Bartek is the world’s largest producer of malic acid and food-grade fumaric acid.

The first in a series of capital investment projects to support its growing acidulants business, Bartek is expanding capacity and capabilities to allow for greater flexibility and support of its food, beverage, and confectionery; animal nutrition; and industrial customers.

Additional projects scheduled for completion in 2019 include state-of-the-art upgrades to Bartek’s laboratories and office facilities. These projects position Bartek to answer the growing global demand for malic acid, fumaric acid, and maleic anhydride and to support its customers’ growth and innovation needs.

“Since TorQuest Partners’ acquisition of Bartek in October of 2018, we’ve executed several significant capital projects to expand our capacity and improve efficiency. Chief among these is an initiative to further increase malic and fumaric acid capacity by an additional 5,000 tons/year in 2019,” said John Burrows, CEO, Bartek.

“Bartek’s presence will grow substantially in 2019 with the introduction of new products and packages to meet market demands, and we will continue to add value for our customers through a series of planned initiatives. With the addition of resources in sales and marketing, we will also increase Bartek’s presence at industry events and trade shows,” added Dave Tapajna, Vice President of Sales, Bartek.
