In 2021, Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients Thailand first formed a partnership with Ingredion, an American food ingredients group with global operations. This has since been extended to Malaysia, Indonesia and most recently, Singapore.
To kick-off the partnership in Singapore, Ingredion hosted an exclusive workshop for the local team in February. Group Chairman Heinrich Jessen and Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients CEO Lim Siew Tin, together with the Ingredients team, joined the session.
It was a valuable opportunity to get to know Ingredion’s senior Asia-Pacific leadership, gain insights into how Ingredion’s products match key global megatrends in the food industry, and tour their laboratory “kitchen”.
There, colleagues were exposed to the vast possibilities for starches to be combined with other ingredients to develop a multitude of innovative products. They were also invited to taste-test food and beverage items made with Ingredion’s ingredients.
The workshop was an opportunity for both teams to better understand their respective strengths and share ideas on leveraging their mutual market capabilities to co-create success.
