Pennsauken, New Jersey - Puratos US, a leading global provider of innovative bakery, patisserie, and chocolate ingredients, announces its plans to open the first-ever dedicated bakery glaze plant in the United States. 

This strategic move will reinforce Puratos' commitment to delivering exceptional service and sustainable supply to customers while expanding its presence in the world's largest bakery market. 

The groundbreaking plant will be constructed at Puratos' main US campus in Pennsauken, New Jersey, strengthening the company's operational capabilities and serving as a regional hub to support customers. 

With established glaze sites in Mexico, Belgium, and Italy, this new addition will further enhance Puratos' extensive global glaze network. 

The investment in the glaze plant highlights Puratos' dedication to providing localized solutions to customers, aligning with their needs and supporting their business success. 

By establishing a local production site, Puratos aims to meet the growing demand for egg wash alternatives, catering to the bakery industry's requirement for a sustainable and reliable supply. 

The facility will feature state-of-the-art equipment to support the production of Puratos' renowned Sunset Glaze—a plant-based and allergen-free egg wash alternative known for its exceptional shine, color, and easy cleaning. 

It will offer packaging options suitable for various needs, ranging from 10L and 20L bag-in-box formats to large-scale industrial packaging. 

Moreover, the new plant will prioritize sustainability, incorporating a 100% solar roof, LED lighting, and on-site electrical charging for vehicles. 

This commitment to eco-friendly practices reflects Puratos' dedication to environmental responsibility. 

As part of the expansion, Puratos will relocate its Northeast distribution center, currently situated in the same location, to a newly purchased 194,000 sq ft building nearby. 

This move will not only strengthen Puratos' East Coast operations but also facilitate the company's growth in the region. 

With recent announcements of a new manufacturing line and distribution facility in California, Puratos is excited about the prospects that this expansion brings. 

By investing in enhanced operational capabilities and innovation, Puratos aims to support customers across the United States in their pursuit of bakery excellence. 

Puratos is a globally recognized company offering a comprehensive range of innovative food ingredients and solutions for the bakery, sweet goods, and chocolate categories. 

Serving large industrial bakeries, retailers, foodservice chains, distributors, and artisan customers, Puratos strives to leverage its global expertise and technologies to create new opportunities and drive success for its customers. 

With a commitment to the health and well-being of people worldwide, Puratos continues to develop innovative food solutions while promoting sustainability and responsible practices.
