CRANBURY, N.J. – A planned expansion at Innophos, Inc. facilities in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico, will increase the site’s food grade phosphate salts and food grade phosphoric acid capacities, the company reported June 18. Innophos also is upgrading the existing facilities to manufacture a range of food grade sodium and potassium phosphate salts.
The expansion and upgrades should be completed in the next 6 to 12 months at the Coatzacoalcos plant, one of eight Innophos sites in North America. The company completed the expansion of its tri-calcium phosphate plant in Chicago Heights, Ill., in March of this year.
