ATLANTA, GEORGIA: CP Kelco said that it will increase pectin production capacity by about 15 percent at its Lille Skensved, Denmark facility. This is in response to continued global demand for the product. This significant investment will enhance market supply in 2020 of low methoxyl amidated (LMA) pectin, which is suited for products such as ambient drinking yogurts and fruit preparations.

Derived from citrus peels, CP Kelco’s GENU Pectin is a multifunctional, label-friendly ingredient that serves as a stabilizer and texturizing agent in jams and jellies, yogurts, acidified protein beverages, dairy desserts and more. The GENU Pectin portfolio includes products that meet non-GMO, vegan and organic compliance requirements. CP Kelco is the world’s leading pectin producer, operating production facilities in Limeira, Brazil, Lille Skensved, Denmark and Groβenbrode, Germany.

“Two converging megatrends are driving the demand for pectin: the consumers’ increased desire for dairy and plant-based protein products, and a continued drive towards better-for-you, clean label foods and beverages. As a result, the global pectin market is experiencing significant growth and we predict this will continue. This capacity investment at our Denmark plant will strengthen our ability to meet the evolving needs and growth aspirations of our customers worldwide,” said Susanne Sorgel, Senior Director, Pectin Platform Strategy at CP Kelco.
