Cargill Raises Netherlands Cocoa Powder Production Capacity

April 19 (Bloomberg) -- Cargill Inc. increased the cocoa powder production capacity at its plant in Wormer, the Netherlands, following an $82 million investment.

Works to upgrade the Dutch processing plant are now complete, Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Cargill said in a statement e-mailed today. The company did not state the new capacity.

Cocoa powder output capacity was increased in “response to growing customer demand for high quality cocoa powders,” according to the statement. The Wormer facility processes cocoa liquor into cocoa butter and powder, the company said.

Cargill’s investment also included a cocoa powder warehouse and distribution center in the port of Amsterdam, the company said. The warehouse will store three times as much product per square metre (3.28 feet) as conventional warehouses in the port, it said.
