The facility will focus on the research and development of Benelact, which was launched last year in response to an increased consumer demand for healthy dairy products.

The ingredient is made using a proprietary process said to remove up to 80 percent of cholesterol and saturated fat from milk, according to CATI.

The technology was originally developed and donated to the center by Kraft Foods. CATI then licensed the process to Alliance Enterprises, which is now undertaking the construction of the new facility.

The plant, located in the CATI Center, will be used for R&D as well as initial production of Benelact.

"Alliance is demonstrating the speed and cost-effectiveness of bringing a commercially viable product to market and contributing to the economic growth of the region by leveraging under-utilized intellectual property from private industry," stated CATI.
