Gaston County, N.C. – GNT, manufacturer of Exberry Coloring Foods, will open a 49-acre facility in Gaston County, just outside of Charlotte, N.C, that expands the company’s North American operations.

GNT announced an initial investment of $30 million.

A Technical and Culinary Experience Center, scheduled to open in August 2022, will provide visitors and culinary teams with an opportunity to experiment, create and innovate.

“We look forward hosting workshops which will enable customers to meet teams of R&D scientists in person to collaborate on colour matching, pilot plant trials and more,” said Frederik Hoeck, CEO at GNT Group B.V.


“Part of our Strategic Growth Plan is a multiple phase expansion in North America. I am happy to announce the completion of the initial phase with our warehouse commissioning on October 15, 2021. This will bring increased capacity, supply-chain efficiency and improved control of inventory,” Hoeck said.

The family-owned business has been operating for 45 years.
