Abbott Expanding Manufacturing Capacity in China to Meet Demands of Fast-Growing Nutrition Market
Date:8/16/2011

China represents the largest single market growth opportunity in global nutrition.  Abbott expects to increase its nutrition revenues in China to more than $1 billion (USD) by the end of 2014. China also continues to be an important part of Abbott's emerging markets strategy. In the first half of the year, more than 26 percent of Abbott's global sales were in emerging markets and nearly 42 percent of Abbott Nutrition's global sales were in emerging markets.

When completed, the plant will become Abbott's first fully integrated spray drying, blending and packaging facility in China. The company's new facility will be located in the Jiaxing Economic and Technological Development Zone, which is located mid-way between Shanghai and Hangzhou.
