The plant was built in 1991 through a joint-venture of the US-based NutraSweet and the Japanese-based Ajinomoto, both active in sweeteners and other food ingredients. From 2000 to 2015, Ajinomoto had full ownership over the plant. In 2015, the plant was acquired by HYET Sweet, a Dutch-based company trading in sweeteners.
In January 2019, the plant was taken over by Standard Investment, a European investment firm specialized in manufacturing and food companies. The French plant makes the same products as before at the same high-quality levels just under a new legal name and new ownership.
