AB InBev-owned brewer Anheuser-Busch is committing $100 million to renovate a building at its St. Louis, MO complex to house a full-scale production facility for barley-based food and beverage ingredients, a company release announced Tuesday. The facility will be operated by the AB-backed sustainable ingredient manufacturer EverGrain.
“This investment in our hometown of St. Louis: playing a leading role in the country’s economic recovery and leveraging our world class innovation capabilities to create a more sustainable future,” said Michel Doukeris, the company’s CEO, in a statement. “Finding more ways to produce and deliver our brands, to adapting our portfolio to meet changing tastes, we are always challenging ourselves to dream bigger and find innovative solutions to bring high-quality products to our consumers.”
The establishment of the manufacturing site comes as consumers are increasingly looking for plant-based or sustainable foods and ingredients. EverGrain currently produces its barley-based offerings at a small-scale, $15 million facility at AB’s brewery in Newark, NJ.
EverGrain has two product lines – EverPro and EverVita – that can be used across a range of applications. The firm’s ingredients are used in the plant-based barley milk line Take Two, and additional products made with the products are slated to hit the market this year.
Anheuser-Busch said the development of the EverGrain plant is part of a broader $1 billion investment in its US operations over the next two years.
