Cargill invests €16.6M to upgrade oil refining facility


Cargill has invested €16.6 million to upgrade its Belgian refining facility in Izegem to grow its global edible vegetable oils business.


The investment will allow the firm to increase production and provide a reliable supply of food and infant nutrition oil.


The new refining installation includes replacing existing equipment with new machinery, such as a deodoriser and processing technology that will facilitate the production process.


According to Cargill, strict standards have been put in place by European legislators for chemical compounds such as 3- and 2-monochloropropanediol and glycidyl esters in infant food.


The upgraded installation is said to facilitate the technical processes and allows Cargill to meet the required European safety and quality standards.
