The plant enables the company to improve the purity, efficacy, and shelf-stability of its ingredients while increasing output capacity
Lycored has launched a processing facility in Branchburg, New Jersey, for its carotenoids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and food ingredients.
The plant enables the company to improve the purity, efficacy, and shelf-stability of its ingredients while increasing output capacity. It provides advanced capabilities for milling, blending, drying, and coating, with opportunities for customisation. The site also features an application lab and production line supporting taste application development.
For the launch, the company has created a dedicated microsite along with a ‘virtual VIP tour’ video. The video was developed alongside motion expert Adam Rubin and creative director Matt Bierce and provides a look around the facilities, which are FDA-registered, cGMP-compliant and NSF certified. It is also allergen-free with temperature- and humidity-controlled environments.
Measures to reduce waste and preserve resources have also been integrated at the plant. These include reduced reliance on energy and transportation; AI-powered planting and harvesting systems; and single-solvent tomato oleoresin extraction to reduces water use.
Shirley Cohen, CEO at Lycored, said: “Our Branchburg facility boasts formidable milling and blending proficiency with state-of-the-art technology. It allows us to optimise nutrient efficacy and bioavailability while providing innovative formulations perfectly tailored to our customers’ requirements. When you prioritise quality at every step of the journey, all health breaks loose.”
Cohen added: “For more than a quarter of a century, we’ve been inspired to find new ways to make the most of natural nutrients for supplements and blends. We’ve learned a lot along the way, reinventing and streamlining countless processes to maximize wellness and minimise waste.”
