Located in Florida, the new plant will be fully operational by Q1 2023 and will be part of the company’s Funtrition by Procaps business division.
Procaps Group, a pharmaceutical and dietary supplement manufacturer headquartered in Latin America, will open a new gummy manufacturing facility in the U.S. to meet growing U.S. and global demand for nutraceutical and specialized gummy products, the firm said. Located in Florida, the new plant will be fully operational by Q1 2023 and will be part of the company’s Funtrition by Procaps business division dedicated to developing unique nutraceutical gummy formulations, flavors, and textures. The company says it has more than 20 years of experience manufacturing gummy products.
The new plant will double the company’s gummies manufacturing capacity. The new plant is modeled after Procaps’s state-of-the-art gummy manufacturing plant in Bogota, Colombia.
“This new facility is expected to substantially increase our capacity for the first time outside of Procaps Group’s Colombian headquarters for the manufacture of animal- and plant-based nutraceutical gummies,” said Camilo Camacho, Procaps group president, in a press release. “The U.S. location will ensure redundancy in supply to the market and position manufacturing of a wider product array closer to key current and potential new customers. The higher production capacities are expected to also be a significant addition to our global growth plans.”
“Complementing our recent West Palm Beach, Florida, acquisition, the expansion of our U.S. capacity for our Funtrition business is an important step towards our commitment to meet the requirements of our growing base of U.S. customers,” added Ruben Minski, Procaps group CEO, in the press release. “Our new Inspiration Center is a critical piece in our value proposition, underscoring our commitment to deliver better health and nutrition to the world through innovative oral delivery systems. Taken together, we believe these long-term investments will further position Funtrition as a leader in extraordinary and enjoyable gummy products and position us to capture emerging growth opportunities within the space.”
