Our commitment to industry-leading innovation and the security and reliability of domestic production is showcased by a new $15 million state-of-the-art drying plant in our Dayton, Ohio manufacturing facility. The plant has been recently enhanced with a new, high-tech vacuum belt dryer which offers complete in-house control and improved flavor, aroma and nutrient preservation compared to spray driers. The dryer is the culmination of a five-year, $50 million investment comprising the expansion of our brew house and the addition of a mash-filter, expanded laboratory, R&D and customer application capabilities.
In Minneapolis, we have also created a new Innovations Lab which helps food & beverage manufacturers test ingredients, experiment with new formulations, perform sensory evaluations and shelf life testing and gain insight into critical flavor and stability properties.
