VERNIER, SWITZERLAND: Givaudan and Henri Fraise Fils et Cie, a full-fledged company in Madagascar has opened their new joint venture NATEMA (Natural Extracts Madagascar), a clove leaf oil processing facility in Madagascar.

The companies signed the JV contract in April 2014 for the plan, build and operation of the facility to convert clove leaf oil directly obtained by Givaudan’s own collection group into byproducts used for its fragrance and flavours manufactures.

The plant was opened in the presence of Hery Rajaonarimampianina, president of the Republic of Madagascar, and his government officials, regional and local politicians; Gilles Andrier CEO of Givaudan; Ralph Fraise, a director with Henri Fraise Fils.  The eight-hectare plant will process hundreds of tonnes of clove leaf oil per year and provide direct employment opportunities for nearly 50 employees.

In accordance with Givaudan’s sustainability commitments, the processing is carried out with recovered rainwater and distillation waste is recycled. NATEMA is currently exploring the installation of sustainable energy sources for the site such as solar panels and biomass boilers.

Supported by a strong local presence, Givaudan raises close, dynamic relations with farmers, distillers and a group of producers who sell their product directly to Givaudan field buyers.

“NATEMA will empower us to establish and grow our capacity to develop and process natural ingredients sourced in Madagascar,” said Gilles Andrier

“NATEMA, one of the largest clove leaf oil processing plants in the world, will contribute to the growing reputation of the country’s clove industry along with other high quality natural products from Madagascar’s rich biodiversity,” added Ralph Fraise.
