The expansion of the facility has increased its size by 50%.
The firm said it now includes new pilot-scale capabilities for specialised nutrition products — including baby food, maternal nutrition, sports nutrition, weight management, senior and clinical nutrition, dairy as well as beverages.
It added Japan was a pioneer market for trends that are expected to grow worldwide.
Roquette has developed a growing presence in Japan since 2002. Its CTS in Tokyo has been in operation, initially focusing on texturing and sugar-free solutions, batter and coating ingredients, and plant-based proteins.
It is also the company’s centre of excellence for noodle application, supported by a strong expertise and a set of solid technologies.
The firm has similar facilities in China and India, with a further one slated to open in Singapore later this year.
Jean-Marc Gilson, Roquette’s CEO said: “The expansion of our Tokyo CTS is a strategic move for Roquette in several ways. It is part of our ambition to serve our clients locally, with a network of experts delivering tailored solutions to specific needs. It also reinforces the company’s presence in Asia, which is a major region for us, offering significant development opportunities.
“Last but not least, this expansion will strengthen our capabilities to offer ever more specialised nutrition solutions addressing local and regional nutrition and health challenges.”
