ADM Cocoa Wins Food Safety Award

07/26/2010
ADM Cocoa Pte Ltd in Singapore has received a gold award from the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) in recognition of its food safety record. The award comes after ADM’s Singapore plant achieved 15 consecutive years of ‘A’ grade safety under the AVA’s Factory Grading Scheme. ADM is one of the first recipients of the award, which was presented to the Company by the Minister of National Development on July 23.

When asked about the award, Yeong Chye, managing director, ADM Cocoa Singapore, commented, “We are extremely proud to receive this award. ADM is committed to producing and delivering safe, high-quality products to our customers. It is through the actions and commitment of every ADM colleague that we are able to maintain and achieve these high standards of food safety.”

ADM Cocoa’s Singapore plant and newly opened Advantage technical centre offer customers a local resource for innovation, product development and technical support. Through the facility, ADM creates a variety of DeZaan™ premium cocoa solutions and the plant’s remarkable safety record supports the ongoing commitment to excellence. The centre is the first technical development facility of its kind in Asia for cocoa liquors, butters and powders, allowing ADM to demonstrate how innovative cocoa and chocolate ingredients add value to bakery, beverage, confectionery and other applications. Designed to help ADM engage participants in hands-on application courses, the facility is equipped with a test centre for the development of concept products and small batches of chocolates.
