Middle East's major starch player - Middle East Food Solutions Company (MEFSCO) has inaugurated a new corn milling facility in Saudi Arabia. The project is a joint venture between Arabian Agricultural Services Company (ARASCO) and agribusiness company Cargill, started in 2013.
The project - that was inaugurated in January this year - consists of building a green field corn milling, glucose and high fructose syrup lines that will supply food and beverage manufacturers in the Middle East.
The facility in Al-Kharj aims to triple the joint venture’s total production volume and double its production of glucose and starch. The plant will also produce high fructose corn syrup to serve the region’s confectionery industry and other food industry segments.
The project can leverage on Cargill’s expertise in processing agricultural commodities into high-quality sweeteners and starch-based products.
President of MEFSCO Ziyad Al-Sheikh said the increased production will serve the local market as well as promote more Saudi exports to the Middle East in line with the Saudi Vision 2030. Ziyad Al-Sheikh,
