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
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
Springer North American subsidiary. The new plant will use the yeast supplied
from the Red Star plant.
The 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.Related
