Japan and France: aspartame boost

Ajinomoto Co. Inc. is investing JPY 6 billion to expand its aspartame manufacturing plants in Yokkaichi, Japan and Gravelines, France, in order to meet growing demand from food and beverage manufacturers for aspartame, an amino acid based sweetener.
A series of expansions at the two locations, beginning early in 2005 and to be completed by March 2006, will result in Ajinomoto’s global capacity reaching 10,000MT per year. The increased capacity will enable Ajinomoto, currently the market leader in aspartame manufacturing to supply more than half of the rapidly growing aspartame market.
