Cargill Foods is expanding its reach to META—Middle East, Turkey, and Africa, that is. Cargill Turkey is focusing on META to help dairy manufacturers better respond to evolving consumer demands. To do this, Cargill Turkey has opened a state-of-the-art technical application center and a high-tech ingredient blending production plant in Bursa, Orhangazi, Turkey, by investing $5 million USD to expand its INFUSE by Cargill™ service.

Cem Beysel, META Executive Committee Member and Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Cargill“As Cargill, we have been trying to support food and beverage manufacturers both in Turkey and in the Middle East and Africa with our ever-expanding products and services. With this investment in Bursa, Orhangazi, we will serve our customers as if this place is their own R&D center,” META Executive Committee Member and Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Cem Beysel, commented. “The Application Center offers manufacturers texturizing blends. Mixtures—which are used in very low quantities in order to ensure the fluidity, aftertaste, rough and/or smoothness of the foods—meet the special needs of the customers while creating the advantage of speed and low cost.”

The Application Center has the ability to offer solutions for the current consumer trends like calorie or fat reduction, fiber, protein-enriched foods, plant-based foods, etc. On top of these trends, noted the release, Cargill wants to meet META dairy manufacturers’ needs like offering more affordable products to market or solving their supply chain hurdles by offering them customized easy-to-apply blends.

The center includes pilot facilities that mimic full-scale dairy processing production lines, enabling Cargill ingredient and application specialists to rapidly test ingredient solutions in real-world conditions.

“With more than 300 ingredients in our toolbox, we can quickly develop, deliver, and optimize prototypes, dramatically shortening bench development time,” Beysel said. “Given today’s complex formulation challenges, the days of solving problems with a single ingredient are gone."
