ABOUT: The Client is a leading global ingredients solutions company producing sweeteners, starches, nutrition ingredients and biomaterials that are used by customers in everyday products from foods and beverages to paper and pharmaceuticals.
The Client has been completing initial feasibility work for a capital project to develop a blending operation named the Blending Center of Excellence (BCOE), located at their Belcamp Brass Mill location.
