Natural Citrus Ingredients
As one of the world’s largest citrus processors, we use 100% of the fruit we process to extract high-quality, natural cold pressed citrus oils and essences, as well as folded oils, fractions and terpenes.
LDC is a fully integrated manufacturer, so our clients’ products benefit from full traceability from raw materials to the final product. From farmers to processors, product developers, merchants and distributors, we monitor our products across the supply chain, right to the end customer.
Our team leverages more than 30 years in the citrus business, and a global commitment to sustainable practices, to offer our customers fresh, unique and responsibly produced citrus fruit flavor profiles, through our natural From The Named Fruit (FTNF) ingredients portfolio.
Thanks to our high-tech equipment and expert team, our citrus oils can be concentrated by vacuum distillation, resulting in intensified aromatic properties and powerful flavor and fragrance notes.
These valuable ingredients are commonly used in various applications such as food, beverages, pharmaceutical and cosmetics products.
