GENEVA, SWITZERLAND: Givaudan SA said it has officially opened its new savoury flavours manufacturing facility in Nantong, China, with an investment of Swiss Francs 50 million ($53.7 million), more than doubling the existing production capacity in China.

The opening ceremony was attended by Mauricio Graber, president flavour division, Matthias Wahren, chief financial officer and Qu Baoxian, party secretary of Nantong economic & technological development area (NETDA), the company said.

The new plant will enable Givaudan to meet the growing needs of customers in China for innovative products and great taste experiences, more efficiently. “The Nantong facility represents our largest investment in China since 2006, supporting our strategic objective of increasing Givaudan’s footprint in developing markets and capturing growth opportunities in savoury, culinary and snacks segments,” said Gilles Andrier, chief executive officer, Givaudan, during the opening ceremony.

Givaudan’s customers in China and across the Asia Pacific region will benefit from faster access to its flavour and taste solutions. The new plant will strengthen the company’s existing capabilities in savoury and culinary flavour blends, snack seasonings, spray dries and process flavours. Over 100 people will be employed on site, of which a large majority have been recruited locally, it said.

“Enhancing our production capabilities in China, coupled with local consumer understanding, will allow us to target flavour development more closely to meet consumer preferences in China and more broadly within Asia,” said Monila Kothari, regional commercial head, APAC, Givaudan.
