CAMBRIDGE— Blendtek Ingredients Inc., a producer of ingredient solutions and product development, announced the official opening of the company’s newly constructed 85,000 square foot headquarters in Cambridge, ON. The new building will house Blendtek’s head office, manufacturing and distribution facilities, and is designed to increase production capabilities, advance innovation in product development and support expanded partnerships in Canada, the United States and throughout Europe.

“The decision to build a new facility and undergo expansion was driven by our mission to fuel innovation in food, meet the growing needs of our customers and help address the market’s current supply chain challenges,” said Rob Bianchin, Blendtek’s Vice President in a statement.
