In response to increased demand for its taste solutions and to keep up with its industry-leading growth rate, FONA International is announcing a significant expansion of operations at the company’s headquarters.
Construction and expansion is already underway at the family-owned creator and manufacturer of taste solutions. The work, led by Schramm Construction, will feature an expansion of proprietary taste technology, the addition of several high-capacity spray dryers, and the hiring of several new production personnel. The project is a $14 million capital investment. Work is expected to wrap by the end of 2018 and spray dry capacity at FONA is expected to increase as a result.
“Delivering against our service and quality promise is the highest priority for us,” said FONA President Amy McDonald. “We are passionate about growth – in particular, facilitating the growth of our customers. This additional capacity will support FONA’s 2×4 growth promise, while also allowing for substantial lead time reduction."
