CSL USA (Cultures Supporting Life) has opened a new fermentation facility to produce food ingredients and cultures, bacterial cultures, and probiotics for use in dairy, food, dietary supplements, pharma, and agriculture.
The independent entity was established with the intention of offering new technology solutions to meet the growing needs of the US biotechnology market. The new custom fermentation facility will be located in Franksville, Wisconsin. The 80,000 sqft facility will support the growing Food, Beverage, Health, and Nutrition markets.
Due to a partnership, CSL will have access to strains and technologies developed by Sacco System (Milan, Italy) over its 150 years of history. Sacco System produces food ingredients including food cultures, bacterial cultures, and probiotics, for the dairy, food, dietary supplements, pharma, and agriculture markets since 1872. Sacco System is also one of the largest contract fermentation organisations in the world.
We believe that the creation of CSL USA will accelerate our efforts to grow in both the health and nutrition and the food and beverage markets globally
As an official technology partner to Sacco System, CSL enters the market with a strong platform of science and a long history of fermentation experience. CSL will promote the full line of food ingredients, food cultures, bacterial cultures, probiotics, and comprehensive fermentation services to customers in the US. This business association will provide mutual benefits to CSL and Sacco System, and most importantly, to our customers today and long into the future.
Kyle Griffiths, VP of Sales & Marketing for CSL said in a written statement: "The new CSL USA production facilities located in the United States will increase our flexibility to serve the needs of US customers, while increasing the global capacity for our worldwide customer base. We believe that the creation of CSL USA will accelerate our efforts to grow in both the health and nutrition and the food and beverage markets globally as we bring new products and service to the US marketplace."
