PRINCETON JUNCTION, New Jersey — International Process Plants (IPP) recently acquired a fermentation plant located in Little Falls, Minnesota, from Superbrewed Food. The acquisition, finalized in late March, marks a significant move for IPP, positioning it strategically in the burgeoning bioeconomy sector.
