GNT Group Expands Customer Service and Application Facilities in the UK

The newly expanded UK facilities of GNT Group house state-of-the-art laboratories and development kitchens to even better service its clients.

Opening of the enhanced UK facility in Derby allows market leader in Colouring Foods to fulfil growing demand and complex requirements of the industry

Mierlo / Derby, 8th December 2016 – Colour is an increasingly important sensory attribute of food and drink products. Appreciating the developing demands of the market, the GNT Group expands the facilities at its strategically important location in Derby, the United Kingdom. “We are proud to officially open our newly expanded offices and application facilities with our experienced and dedicated team,” says Paul Collins, Managing Director of GNT UK Ltd. “From here we serve not only the UK but also clients in locations including Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, India and Israel.” This is another important investment by GNT to offer its clients worldwide even more extensive, in-depth support – from the creation of the recipe through to the finished product – demonstrating the company’s leading role in service quality.

“The new premises provide us with greater capacity to handle a wider diversity of projects than ever before, thus serving the growing number of food and beverage manufacturers switching to Colouring Foods”, says Paul Collins. “Even though our natural colour solutions are simple and uncomplicated to handle, each product has its own challenges. Our application experts assist during the entire product development process and offer customised solutions, whenever necessary, fulfilling the increasingly specific requirements of our clients.”

The new 750m2 facility houses various application and analytical laboratories, development kitchens as well as spacious light offices for the growing team. High specification equipment now permits GNT UK to offer further local support across a diverse range of food and drink categories including panning drums for coated confectionery and a wet area dedicated to beverages developments. State of the art accelerated storage equipment assists with shelf life evaluations and the assessment of colour performance – being a key element of GNT’s service competence. Additionally, the creation of a unique Customer Experience Room – a bespoke facility for workshops and projects – allows clients to gain first-hand insights, interact with and experience Colouring Foods.

As pioneer in the field of Colouring Foods, over the last 38 years GNT has built up extensive expertise on raw materials and applications. Thanks to its innovative research and development processes, GNT can provide its clients with individually tailored colour solutions for nearly every product category.
