June 14, 2012

The Tarrytown facility is especially focused on new delivery forms for dietary supplements, as well as “next generation” snack foods, baked goods, beverages, and dairy products.

BASF (Florham Park, NJ) this week opened its newly expanded Food Technology & Applications Center in Tarrytown, NY. As part of the site’s larger 160,000-sq-ft R&D center, which also does research on personal care and pharmaceutical applications, the food facility is designed as an innovation hub to help customers develop new food product ideas and technical solutions.

The facility features a new kitchen. “In our center, we can eliminate the guesswork and perfect the formulation to help our customers efficiently market products that resonate with consumers,” stated Charles Barber, technical sales and applications manager, nutrition and health, for BASF, North America. “Whether it’s baking a cake with more volume, creating a nutrition bar with better texture and taste, or adding an appealing colorant to a beverage, we are your one-stop kitchen.”

Barber added that the team at the Tarrytown facility is especially focused on new delivery forms for dietary supplements, as well as “next generation” snack foods, baked goods, beverages, and dairy products.

The Tarrytown site is one of BASF’s many worldwide nutrition ingredient technical centers.
