A new spray drying tower was inaugurated on 23rd of April at Lesaffres Biospringer site in Strasbourg. This investment in a third drying tower will be dedicated to drying of parietal fractions of yeast. The total investment cost is around 7 million Euro and will enable Lesaffre to produce close to 4,000 tons per year. Lesaffre investment is a consequence of a booming market. The investment were decided since the two existing towers could not handle any more processing of yeast extracts.
