Prayon to build food grade sodium hexametaphosphate facility in Georgia, US

GEORGIA, US: Prayon, world leader in phosphate chemistry, will build a manufacturing unit of food grade sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) that will double its production capacity and strengthen its position in the food sector.

Preliminary studies have been completed and the decision made to build the plant on the Group’s US site in Augusta, Georgia, supplementing the current SHMP production unit in Roches de Condrieu, France. The final phase of engineering studies are under way.

Projected capacity of the new SHMP unit is 10,000 tonne per year. The project is part of Prayon’s growth strategy in the food sector and will support the strategic development in emerging markets such as Latin America and Asia. It will enable the Group to meet growing customer demand for processed food applications as well as ever increasing internal needs for the manufacture of core products such as CarfoselTM (for meat and seafood applications) and KasomelTM (for cheese).
