DDW opens second site

Food-colourings-96kbFood colourings company DDW has opened a second site in Louisville for manufacturing food ingredients. Located next to the company’s global support centre and near its caramel colour operation, the facility will produce specialty colourings for food and beverage companies in North America.

The new facility will produce DDW’s new EmulsiTech colour emulsions. DDW converts oil-soluble sources, such as beta-carotene and paprika, into water-dispersible form, making them suitable for colouring beverages, soup, ice cream, yogurt, confections, baked goods and more. With EmulsiTech, DDW says that product developers can formulate with easy-to-use, natural colourings for clear or opaque applications. In addition to manufacturing, the facility also houses a pilot plant, cold storage and offices.

“The new site enables DDW to produce an even broader portfolio of food colouring in the yellow, orange and red spectrum for customers,” said Elaine Gravatte, president and chief operating officer. “The opening of a natural colour manufacturing site in Ireland back in April also speaks to our continued momentum as we celebrate our company’s 150-year anniversary.”
