Netherlands based Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) has opened a new oilseeds processing plant in Tianjin, China, as it aims to meet the needs of its partners and consumers in the country.
With a daily soybean crushing capacity of 4,000 tons and a daily oil refining capacity of 1,200 tons, the plant will bolster LDC’s supply of soybean meal, crude soybean oil and refined edible vegetable oil.
The plant’s bottling, filling, packaging and storage facilities also prepare LDC to go downstream in the supply chain by introducing packed oil.
The production line for refined oil commenced operations in June, with small-packaged edible oil production expected to begin at the end of the year.
In addition to the new facility, LDC will continue to look for investment and collaboration opportunities in Tianjin and other cities in China as part of its long-term plan to grow in the country.
