CHANNAHON, ILL. — IOI Loders Croklaan will expand its production facility in Rexdale, Ont. New deodorization capacity will complement recent additions in bleaching and oil processing. New assets are designed to address expected future mitigation requirements for contaminants such as MCPD and glycidyl esters.
The Rexdale refinery supplies specialty fats and oils to customers in Canada and the Northeast United States, said Bill Troy, North America chief operating officer at IOI Loders Croklaan.“The new assets, scheduled to be commissioned in July 2017, demonstrate the commitment to the Canadian and Northeast U.S. markets and meeting the growing demand from these regions,” he said. “The expansion strengthens our North American manufacturing footprint and provides the path to offer these regions with a wider selection of our industry-leading solutions and brands such as SansTrans bakery shortenings, Freedom Series confectionery fats and Coberine branded cocoa butter equivalents.”
