SRI CITY, INDIA: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc (IFF) has broken ground on a new flavours and fragrances plant located in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh, India. Part of a larger investment into the Greater Asia region, the plant is expected to be commercialized in December 2019.

The new facility, which will be the largest flavour and fragrance manufacturing facility in India and the largest IFF site in Greater Asia, occupies a 32-acre/130,000m2 plot and will serve IFF flavours & fragrances customers across India and the region.

The new facility, strategically located in Sri City, will have excellent logistics options, access to skilled labour, and solid infrastructure and utilities. In line with the company’s dedication to driving sustainability across the entire organization, the site is designed for efficient water use and reuse, rainwater harvesting capabilities, energy-efficient building materials and equipment, maximization of natural daylight, and low-consumption LED lighting.

“In this economically vibrant country, it is critical that we invest to provide our customers with winning tastes and scents. This new facility is fitted with capabilities tailored to our customers’ needs. Coupled with our excellent consumer insights teams and their deep understanding of the local markets, we are well-positioned to live up to our promise to be our customers’ partner of choice,” said Andreas Fibig, IFF chairman and CEO.

‘’India is a priority market for IFF. We are excited about our investment at Sri City and the world-class manufacturing facility designed to meet our customers’ current and future needs,’’ added MG Prakash, IFF India managing director.

“IFF has been a leader in India for more than 85 years, serving a wide customer base from global consumer companies to small and medium enterprises. IFF India has a rich talent pool that provides cutting-edge solutions to our customers for their flavour and fragrance needs. We are proud to be a part of the growth of the Indian economy and to the communities where we operate. Further, we are excited to continue our legacy with this investment and look forward to many more years of growing with our customers,’’ added Prakash.
