Visit us at booth 11.1D91 and discover the soluble fibre assets of Malian gum arabic30 Oct 2017
Dear FI Visitor,
Gum arabic is a key source of soluble dietary fibre as well as being a very effective and reliable stabilizer and thickener for use in functional & health foods, sauces and seasonings, beverages, vegetarian and dairy foods, desserts, confectionery and ice cream. Current global demand is estimated annually at 106kt and, with global supply at an annual average of 58kt, this indicates a shortfall of around 48kt thus a need for an increase in supply.
During 2016, Mali exported 5760 tons of controlled gum arabic, compared to 2364 tons in 2105. At present, there are about twenty professional exporters of gum arabic, and the country's potential for production can be estimated at approximately 10kt annually spread across 73000 acres of land.
With such an important potential for growth in production and recent
developments in infrastructure, improved logistics and the lifting
of trade barriers, we are
collaborating with Giract - a leading transnational business research and
consultancy organization specializing in food ingredients, additives and
related fine chemical and technologies - and have selected several of
Mali's primary gum arabic exporters, collectors and heads of
missions from Produits du Sud, SOMIVAP, SODEPAM, Société de Produits Sahéliens,
SOATAF, UMOCIR and SCOOPS to promote the entire Malian Gum Arabic sector
during FI Europe in Frankfurt.
We are confident of the advantages and sustainability of the ingredient from Mali, and, as a key user of gum arabic, wish to meet you during your presence at the show in order to present the product in more detail.
