GNT, manufacturer of Exberry Coloring Foods, is investing $30 million into an expansion of its 49-acre facility located in Gaston County, NC. 

“As the global leader of coloring food, we see consistent demand for our colors as the consumption of products that are formulated with Exberry continues to grow,” said Hendrik Hoeck, CEO at GNT Group B.V., in a press release. “Part of our Strategic Growth Plan is a multiple phase expansion in North America. I am happy to announce the completion of the initial phase with our warehouse commissioning on Oct. 15, 2021. This will bring increased capacity, supply-chain efficiency, and improved control of inventory.”

A Technical and Culinary Experience Center is scheduled to open August 2022. It will provide visitors and culinary teams with the opportunity to experiment, create, and innovate together. 

“Our globally aligned innovation focus fields are a big part of our investment strategy to offer new coloring food solutions,” Hoeck said. “The expected completion of the next phase will bring finished good production even closer to our North American customers by the end of 2022. This will increase the speed of bringing innovation to market.”
