Roquette opens new Asia Pacific Headquarters and an Innovation Centre in Singapore
French plant-based ingredients maker Roquette, a global leader in food, nutrition & health markets, opened on 26th October its new Asia Pacific headquarters and an innovation centre in Singapore during a ceremony attended by Deputy Head of Mission Ariane Trichon and Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Chairman Lim Chuan Poh.
The state-of-the-art facilities, which include a research laboratory, customer technical services as well as the new regional headquarters, will allow Roquette to tailor its products and address the specific health and dietary challenges of the region such as obesity or diabetes.
The new facilities will complement Roquette’s existing research and application centers in the Americas, Asia and Europe and will allow the company to partner with customers, universities and research institutions, such as Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) or the National University of Singapore. They will reinforce Roquette’s deep expertise to support customer innovations in food, nutrition and pharma.
The more than 1,100 square meter innovation center is located in Biopolis, an international research and development hub in Asia Pacific for fast-growing sectors such as food and nutrition, biomedical sciences, bioengineering, and medical technology. It adds to Roquette’s existing presence in Asia, which includes today a large commercial presence in many countries and several sites in China, India and South Korea.
