Cargill invests US $100 million in facility in Pandaan, Indonesia
November 25, 2020
Cargill is investing US $100 million in its sweetener plant, PT. Sorini Agro Asia Corporindo, in Pandaan to build a corn wet mill and add a starch dryer to better serve the growing customer demand for corn-based starches, sweeteners and animal feed ingredients.
The Pandaan facility originally opened in 1983 and currently imports dry starch and converts it into sweeteners.. With the expanded capabilities, Cargill will be able to produce corn-based equivalents of its existing sweeteners and add corn starch, corn gluten meal, corn gluten feed and corn germ to its portfolio. In doing so, Cargill is better prepared to collaborate with customers to meet their formulation needs.
The facility is expected to be online by early 2022.
