EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Davisco Foods International, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of a new representative office and distribution center in Singapore. This expansion will oversee a network of offices connecting Davisco to one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

The new Singapore office will be headed by David Curta, Director of International Sales, and will target a region with one of the highest growth rates for dairy consumption in the world.

I couldn't be more excited about the global demand for Davisco's high-quality dairy products and look forward to better serving the Asian community through Dave Curta's exceptional leadership," said Jon Davis, Chief Executive Officer, Davisco Foods International, Inc.

Davisco's strong global integration is unique among dairy processors. The new Singapore expansion will complement Davisco's global position by joining offices already established in Geneva, Switzerland, and Shanghai, China, and distribution centers located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and Tianjin, China. Davisco's ingredients have also grown to become a high quality premium supplier to multinational food companies around the world.
