Make In India

In 2019, Nexira, the world leader in acacia gum, gets stronger in India with the opening of a new spray-drying tower dedicated to the production of acacia gum.

With this new state-of-the-art production site, Nexira can supply large quantities of spray-dried acacia gum to Food & Health industries in India.

Acacia gum is a dried exudate from the stem and branches of Acacia Senegal or Acacia Seyal trees found in the acacia gum belt.

In India, acacia gum is widely known as babul gond. It is traditionally used in Northern cuisine for texturizing and nutritional properties. In particular gond ke laddus are energy balls made of flour, babul gond, nuts and dried fruits.

Spotlight on the food & beverage market in India

The food and beverage industry in India is the fifthlargest sector in manufacturing. Total consumption of the F&B segment in India is expected to increase from US$ 369 billion to US$1.142 trillion by 2025. Considering its attractiveness in the Indian F&B industry, confectionery is one of the top ten high-growth segment.

Consumers are so health-conscious today that they seek health and wellbeing in every thing they consume, including confectionery. One of the major trends that is driving this segment is towards sugar-free and healthy products. “Manufacturers are shifting toward recipes that have more natural and organic ingredients. Apart from this, candy companies are expected to incorporate more nutritious add-ins like nuts, seeds, and fruits to appeal to the health-conscious demographic“, notes Prashant Bhosale from Nexira, India. Industry players are facing new challenges to meet consumers’ expectations.
