The starch sweeteners plant will serve the growing Middle Eastern food and beverage market.

Lyon, France, March 8, 2018 – Novasep, a leading supplier of services and technologies for the life sciences industry, is pleased to announce that MEFSCO, a joint venture between Cargill and ARASCO, has partnered with Novasep to provide the entire production process line for their glucose and fructose refinery in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The MEFSCO project consists in the building of a green field corn milling, glucose and high fructose syrup lines. The plant, inaugurated in January 2018, will supply food and beverage manufacturers in the Middle East.

Novasep provided the MEFSCO facility with Complete Process Lines including design, engineering, delivery of equipment, commissioning, and start-up.

"We are proud that MEFSCO partnered with Novasep for this project. The good relationships and close interactions with the MEFSCO and Cargill teams were essential to successfully complete the plant. This is also a great success for Novasep's Complete Process Line strategy. It demonstrates our ability to further support our customers in their projects by providing process engineering for an entire production line beyond the sole purification units that are our core business." said Nadège Laborde, President of Novasep Process Solutions Business Unit.

The Middle Eastern food industry is fast-growing and consumers in the area are more and more sensible to food safety and quality. The MEFSCO facility will support the development of local food and beverage manufacturers by providing them with high quality sweeteners.

"MEFSCO decided on this investment to cater for Middle East food industry needs and bring new solutions that will help enhancing food application development for local growth and exports", said Ziyad Alsheikh, Chief Executive Officer of MEFSCO. "The strong relations and commitment between MEFSCO, its shareholders (ARASCO & Cargill) and its project partners such as Novasep, was on its highest, which led to the success of running the new plant smoothly and supply the market with new products for the first time in Saudi Arabia and GCC region."
