20 Jan 2016 --- At the end of 2015, GEA received a major order from Danone to equip a new state-of-the-art facility for its international Early Life Nutrition brands with several production lines.

The Nutricia facility will be constructed in Cuijk, the Netherlands. In particular, GEA will supply and install its Evaporation and Spray Drying Technologies. GEA’s scope of supply has a value of around EUR 50 million.

“The new GEA lines will become the core technologies in Danone’s new production facility. The new plants are designed for continuous operation. They will also be highly energy-efficient, thus meeting Danone’s ambitious targets for sustainability”, commented Niels Erik Olsen, Member of the Executive Board of GEA and responsible for the Solutions Business Area.

The plant will start the production of their infant formulas towards the end of 2017.
