The acquisition of Vigido AG’s pectin know-how and customer data significantly strengthens FMC’s pectin portfolio with expertise in marketing and R&D knowledge. Vigido AG products previously marketed under the brand name VIDOPECTINE will now be available from FMC BioPolymer.
“This acquisition enriches our expertise and capabilities in natural-based food ingredients,” said Mary T. Clarke, general manager, Food Ingredients, FMC BioPolymer. “For our pectin business, Vigido’s pectin market and application knowledge and formulation experience complements our existing strength in manufacturing and our more than 65 years of experience in the food industry, to solidify our position in the pectin market.”
Adding the Vigido know-how to FMC’s newly acquired pectin business provides FMC BioPolymer with enhanced ability to serve a wide range of low pH food applications. In addition, the acquisition provides the company with a broader product line with which to provide customized food ingredient solutions, as well as easier access to many customer applications for the pectin produced in the Milazzo pectin facility.
