Cargill’s salt business has signed an agreement with CIECH Group, a supplier of evaporated salt products. The agreement will see the food grade evaporated salts manufactured by CIECH combined with Cargill’s portfolio of specialty food salts including Alberger, Premier, Microsized and Potasium Pro.
By working with CIECH through their facilities in Janikowo, Poland and Stassfurt, Germany, Cargill can now provide access to a full range of specialty and evaporated food salt solutions to European food manufacturers.
The move complements the company’s existing food ingredients in Europe which spans edible fats and oils, starches, sweeteners, plant proteins, texturisers, cocoa and chocolate and more, leveraging the company’s experience with supporting customers with salt products and sodium reduction solutions.
“We’ve been in the salt business in North America for more than 60 years, a legacy that gives us ample experience of providing technical expertise to customers looking to formulate foods with this foundational ingredient,” said Sonya Roberts, President of Cargill’s salt business.
“This is an important stage in the development of our salt business as we are leveraging the extensive experience of Cargill to bring cutting-edge evaporated salt to the European market,” added Philipp Kley, CIECH Group’s Director of the Business Unit Salt.
The cooperation comes at a time when CIECH Group offers additional volumes from its state-of-the-art production facility in Stassfurt, Germany. The facility, combined with production from the company’s Janikowo plant in Poland, makes CIECH Group a large producer of evaporated salt in Europe. Cargill operates salt production facilities in both the US and the Caribbean.
