ATLANTA — Expansions in Okmulgee, Okla., and Wulian, China, will enhance CP Kelco’s ability to offer its biogums: gellan gum, specialty xanthan gum and diutan gum. The fermentation-derived gums provide stabilization, texture, suspension and viscosity in a variety of food, beverage, personal care, household care, pharmaceutical and industrial products and applications.

Atlanta-based CP Kelco will expand gellan gum production capacity in its Okmulgee facility. In its Wulian facility, CP Kelco will add gellan gum production capabilities and expand the facility’s overall capacity, which will support growth across all three biogums.
