AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS — Corbion has acquired a vinegar production facility in Montgomery, Ala. The new site is expected to be operational in September. 

“Increasing our own production capacity within Corbion comes with a number of advantages for our company and our customers,” said Andy Muller, president, Sustainable Food Solutions. “In addition to reducing our supply risks, it gives us greater control over quality, decreases complexity in our supply chain, and enhances our competitiveness and responsiveness to customer needs. It also means we’re better prepared for growth in the market.”

Corbion offers a range of vinegars under the Verdad brand to deliver label-friendly benefits, which include retaining moisture, reducing sodium content and increasing the stability of meat products, according to the company.

Corbion is a sustainable ingredients company that specializes in lactic acid, lactic acid derivatives, food preservation solutions, functional blends, and algae ingredients using fermentation and preservation processes.
