Lampados invests $500K in expanded plant capacity for Liteez

Lampados International is completing a new plant expansion for the production of Liteez—a vegan, egg-free 3D meringue kiss sweetener for hot drinks. The larger facility will allow the company to meet what it says is rapidly growing demand.

The facility will produce 8,000 retail packages per day in the first stage, and will double production within a few months. The company invested more than $500,000 to increase production of the sweetener, which is available as either a stevia- or sucralose-based product. The plant is BRC- and kosher-certificated.

“Production is now fully automated and modular, to allow maximum flexibility for increasing capacity as well as creating additional, customized sweeteners,” said Noam Kaplan, CEO of Lampados.

“The demand for our 3D sweetener has grown extensively in Australia, India, South Africa, Europe and Central America,” said Kaplan. “Most of our clients are seeking to expand their portfolio with innovative sweeteners and/or cookies, and are keen to launch a next-gen sweetener that will give them a competitive edge in the market. Customers from the food service market commented that they were impressed by the innovation and the sensation experience reported by their consumers.”
