The facility with advanced equipment and capabilities will offer protective cultures for dahi and yogurt, soy protein products, ice-cream, as well as Indian snacks and biscuits that are produced to meet the regional taste and texture expectations.

DuPont will also be able to introduce formulations that are more convenient and affordable for more food choices for the food industry.

The company, along with its customers, is already working on increasing the shelf-life of products in hotter climates where cold chain technology is not available.

DuPont Nutrition & Health president Matthias Heinzel said: "According to industry estimates, the food industry in India is growing between 15 and 20 percent annually. We recognize that while the science of food is global, the taste and flavors of food are local.

"As we develop those local solutions, we need to be able to work closely with our local customers on foods they are developing for their consumers. This Innovation Application Center provides that access and a place for us to share our innovation and expertise, to showcase what we can offer and to help our customers save valuable time in developing novel solutions for the market."

The Innovation Application Center will initially employ 15 to 20 people by the end of this year.

Besides the new facility, the company already operates a blending facility for specialty ingredients in Sohna, Haryana.
