Jan 16, 2020

Lallemand, one of the leaders in the production of yeast-based ingredients, with several factories in the US, Canada, Mexico and other parts of the world, has recently strengthened its position in the North American market with the acquisition and transformation of a new Canadian production site.

This yeast extract facility in Cornwall, ON, is just 62 miles southwest of Montreal International airport, close to Lallemand’s headquarters and fewer than 400 mi north of New York City.  With the US border nearby, it is an ideal North American location for rapid customer response.

After 1.5 years of plant refurbishment and investment in new equipment, Lallemand kicked-off production in the summer of 2019.
We now proudly announce the start of supply to our Food and Biotech customers.

A RELIABLE PRODUCER FOR THE SAVORY INDUSTRY

Yeast extract is a functionally versatile natural food ingredient derived from the same yeast used for bread, wine and beer production. Yeast extract can improve, intensify and add depth of flavor to a range of foods. Depending on the particular yeast extract, flavors may include meaty, roasted, grilled, cheesy and fatty notes, with the overall richness of umami.

With no synthetic, artificial, or animal ingredients, yeast extract is suitable for many different food preparations.

The demand for yeast extracts continues to grow in the North American markets, due to continued development of mainly clean label and plant-based areas of interest.

Despite the rise and fall of various trends in the food industry, clean label is definitely a stable one:  consumers are mindful of their food and beverage choices, they request natural, recognizable ingredients and transparency. Natural products, or the extracts of those, are a great opportunity for food manufacturers to increase their market share and value proposition. Yeast extracts perfectly fit the trend as key in the development of tasty, natural, clean label meals.

Our specialties are part of the plant-based1 innovative solutions we propose to reproduce juiciness and taste for consumers used to meat and dairy sensorial properties but looking for alternatives.

Our product range expands the availability of ingredients produced in North America by Lallemand. To provide the best options and additional benefits to our North American customers, the production from Cornwall is Non-GMO Project Verified (NGP).

THE ADVANTAGES OF “NEXT-DOOR” PRODUCTION

With the new location in Cornwall, ON, next to the US border, Lallemand increases its yeast extracts capacity and plays a key role in supporting the North American market expansion.

Our dedicated sales and R&D teams and proximity guarantee an optimal understanding of the market, reactivity, and flexibility.

A great advantage of Cornwall is that now more products are available within the NAFTA/USMCA trade agreements for Savory and Fermentation customers.

Cornwall yeast extracts have a great fit in application with our US Torula yeast specialties
