UK headquartered food ingredient manufacturer Plant-Ex Ingredients have continued their expansion with the commitment to a further 18,000 sq. ft. building at their main site, Access 18 in Avonmouth, Bristol opening in March 2021.
The building will house a Technical Support facility combining four NPD laboratories for the key divisions in the organisation; Natural Colours, Top Note Flavours, Extracts and Food Protection Systems, as well as a Development Kitchen, to further understand the impact of the company’s products in customer’s applications. The expertise within the Development teams at Plant-Ex is the backbone of the organisation’s capability to meet customer’s needs, which means that many of the 4000+ live recipes are designed specifically to cater to individual client’s processing parameters.
Plant-Ex Ingredients have steadily developed since establishment in 2010, with a team of more than 70 people and production facilities in both the UK and Turkey, the company is rapidly becoming a well-known supplier of Natural Colours, Flavours, and Extracts throughout Europe and beyond supplying food manufacturers in more than 49 countries.
Managing Director, Giles Drewett, commented: “the expansion indicates our continued commitment to growing our technical capabilities and knowledge in these four sectors, which means that our support to customers and partners can be even more detailed and comprehensive.”
With annual group sales heading toward the £20 million mark, the next five years will likely see further leaps in growth for this dynamic enterprise.
