The Belgian group Puratos (7,000 employees), a world ingredients’ leader, is commencing manufacture of aseptic and additive-free products. The group has invested €5.5M in doubling the surface area of its Fougères factory which currently produces biscuit fillings and tart coatings for 150 bakery, pastry-making and chocolate professionals. The site will increase from 7 kT to 12 kT production and should thus create a new production line by 2018 which will mean hiring new employees within eighteen months. The Fougères factory is moving towards high-end products.
