“Large F&B businesses, especially in the US and Western European countries such as Germany, the UK, and France, are increasingly looking to source non-GMO-based sodium citrate ingredients for product formulations. Increasing awareness about the health and environmental risks associated with consuming GMO-based F&B products will drive the demand for non-GMO based sodium citrate.” – A. Kowshik, chemicals expert at SpendEdge.
As China remains the most significant bulk-based producer and exporter of sodium citrate, end-user businesses across multiple geographies are exporting the citrate from the country. Though they may take advantage of low costs associated with production in China, they may incur high costs associated with transportation and logistics of shipping. These costs are likely to continue the upward trend as oil prices rise. As a result, procurement professionals are facing challenges regarding sourcing of sodium citrate.
