Fazer brings xylitol production back to Finland and builds a xylitol manufacturing facility in Lahti using hull as the raw material. Utilising the side stream of the oat milling process with state-of-the-art technology for xylitol production is a great example of a modern circular economy innovation. The xylitol market is expected to grow, and Fazer targets Northern Europe and beyond with this plant-based raw material of Finnish origin.
