PURECIRCLE TO DOUBLE OUTPUT
Company spends RM185m to expand plant
PURECIRCLE, a leading producer of high-purity stevia for the global food and beverage industry, is targeting to double its production capacity with the completion of its RM185 million expanded plant here.
Group chief executive officer Magomet Malsagov said the new plant would also enable the company to focus on more efficient extraction and processing from sustainably grown stevia leaves.
“PureCircle is committed to a substantial ongoing investment programme to ensure that our customers have year-round access to the highest-quality stevia leaf extracts that have been sustainably grown.
“The expansion of our extraction and processing operations will benefit not only our customers, but also our employees, the farmers, the communities we work with and our end consumers,” he said, here, yesterday.
The expanded plant was launched by Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili.
