Recently, Ohly announced the transfer of their plant in Hutchinson, Minnesota to Lallemand as part of a long-term strategic partnership.
Lallemand is a privately-owned Canadian group specializing in the research, development, production, marketing, and distribution of yeast and bacteria for use in food ingredients.
The transfer of the Hutchinson site allows Ohly to increase focus on their core areas – yeast extract specialties and PRODRY® culinary powders, as they explained in a recent article.
The same article explains that “The divestiture to a strategic investor like Lallemand also serves two additional goals for Ohly – job security for the Hutchinson team and supply security for Ohly in the form of yeast cream, which we extract in our site in Boyceville.”
