GNT steps up North American operations

GNT, manufacturer of Exberry Coloring Foods, has announced an initial investment of USD 30 m to expand its operation in North America. Centrally located in Gaston County, just outside of Charlotte/North Carolina, the facility shall take the company’s operations to new heights and provide significant advantages for its customers throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico.

Hendrik Hoeck, CEO at GNT Group B.V., says: “As the global leader of colouring food we see consistent demand for our colours as the consumption of products that are formulated with Exberry continues to grow. Part of our strategic growth plan is a multiple phase expansion in North America.” The warehouse facility shall bring increased capacity, supply-chain efficiency and improved control of inventory.

A Technical and Culinary Experience Center, scheduled to open August 2022, shall provide visitors and culinary teams with an unprecedented opportunity to experiment, create, and innovate together. Frederik Hoeck: “We look forward hosting workshops which will enable customers to meet teams of R&D scientists in person to collaborate on colour matching, pilot plant trials, and more”.
