28 Wednesday April 18 2018 Latest Christchurch news at SELWYN RURAL LIFE SELWYN TIMES Dairy company to double manufacturing capacity of lactoferrin Synlait Milk has secured a multiyear lactoferrin supply agreement that will underwrite an investment of approximately $18 million to double lactoferrin manufacturing capacity at Synlait Dunsandel. “Lactoferrin is a high-value, specialty ingredient used in a range of nutritional food products around the world. This agreement is a major step forward for our growing lactoferrin business and delivers to our strategic commitments,” managing director and CEO John Penno says. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein recognised for its anti-bacterial and antiinflammatory properties. As a naturally occurring milk protein, it is commonly used in infant formula products throughout the world. “We’re deliberately building our lactoferrin business with stable, longterm growth in mind. This agreement is a major step forward in this direction and continues to build our credibility as a producer of specialty dairy nutrition ingredients to world-leading nutritional companies,” Mr Penno says. “Our investment decision to double our lactoferrin manufacturing capacity is underpinned by three factors: a strengthening global market for lactoferrin, growing internal demand for our own infant formula manufacture and a secure portfolio of reputable lactoferrin customers,” he says. Synlait observed in their FY18 interim results that a demand and supply imbalance is driving global strengthening of lactoferrin prices and demand is notably driven from increasing use of lactoferrin in infant formula, particularly in China. The expansion to Synlait’s lactoferrin facility is expected to be completed by October 2018. “As a specialty ingredient, lactoferrin commands a much higher price per metric tonne than many other dairybased ingredients. This is because of its unique functional properties, as well as the complexity of production processes,” group category manager Dr Elizabeth Reid says. Dr Reid adds Synlait’s unique production processes, experience making lactoferrin and access to a range of laboratory and technical expertise makes them one of the few producers in the world offering reliable access to significant quantities of infant nutrition-grade lactoferrin. “It’s a coveted position we’ve worked towards since we started producing lactoferrin in 2014. Our growing customer base use lactoferrin in a range of products from health supplements to infant formula,” says Dr Reid. In April 2017 Synlait became the second company in the world to receive a GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to export its lactoferrin to the United States for use in infant formula and toddler formula.
