Roquette Opens New Food Customer Technical Service Center in Singapore

Albion Minerals®

Roquette has announced the opening of a Food Customer Technical Service (CTS) Center in Singapore, strengthening its position in Asia to better address nutrition and health challenges. 

The Food CTS Center will enable Roquette to anticipate and respond to an increasing demand for Asia-specific product applications in Food, Nutrition and Health sectors. This new facility will form part of the overall Asia Pacific Innovation Center based in Singapore, that has already developed a strong expertise in research & development and in Pharma CTS. It further intensifies Roquette’s technical capabilities in Asia, which currently rely on CTS Centers in Shanghai (China), Mumbai (India), Tokyo (Japan) and Singapore. 

This move will also allow the company to further develop strategic partnerships with customers, universities and research institutions in the region, and will also help in tailoring solutions to the distinct preferences, health requirements and cultural needs of Asian consumers. Roquette will thus actively contribute to the expansion of its knowledge base and will speed up the development of its innovations. 

The Food CTS Center’s customer base will consist of multinational companies, regional players and local start-ups, according to Roquette. It will bring together technology and expertise to develop solutions with a unique sensory experience in baking, dairy, confectionary, savory and specialized nutrition market segments. The CTS Center will have a broad range of capabilities including formulation, texture improvement, new application development and understanding of the features of ingredients in finished products. The company aims to staff this new center with five scientists by the end of 2019 and to be a true partner for its customers in innovation, novel food technologies, formulation and application, providing also training to support application development.

“The opening of this new Food CTS Center in Singapore is a proof-point of our resolve to better serve our customers. This region is a major focus area for us and this new center will help us extend our activities into key markets in the region by bringing us closer to our customers,” said Rod Quin, vice president of the Roquette Food Global Business Unit. “Roquette is strongly positioned to meet specific Asian consumer needs in Food, Nutrition and Healthg markets as dietary habits and lifestyles continue to evolve.”
