Arla Foods Ingredients has revealed plans to invest EUR120m (US$160.1m) in the establishment of a lactose manufacturing facility in Denmark.

The plant will be constructed next to the firm’s existing main protein factory in Jutland, and will have an annual capacity of 85,000 tonnes of lactose.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by October 2014, and the plant will be fully operational in 2016.

Arla said the facility has been designed to “satisfy growing demand for lactose” in the infant formula industry while “adhering to strict quality standards”.
