ADM, Lesaffre to expand US yeast business

Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) and France-based Lesaffre Yeast Corporation expand their yeast business in the US, with extra capacity due to be added in early 2009.

The project, which still needs to receive construction and environmental permits, will see the expansion of the firms' joint venture Red Start Yeast Company plant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. According to Red Star president John Riesch, the expansion will provide additional resources to support the growth of Red Star's yeast business.

The additional capacity is also designed to support the operation of a new adjacent yeast extract plant, which will be constructed by Lesaffre's Bio Springer North American subsidiary. The new plant will use the yeast supplied from the Red Star plantThe facility will be commissioned in the first half of 2010, with a capacity designed to meet the needs of the company's North American customers.
