IFF commissions new fragrance ingredients plant in China

NEW YORK, US: International Flavours & Fragrances Inc (IFF) said that it is commissioning a new fragrance ingredients plant in Jiande, China. The plant underscores IFF’s commitment to the region and builds on the company’s global presence for the sector. The new facility occupies approximately 165,000 square meters and will serve IFF customers globally.

The plant was designed to help deliver on IFF’s strategic sustainability goals and to minimize its environmental impact with a special focus on areas of greatest sensitivity to the region. The facility was designed to have the lowest water consumption per kilo of production in IFF’s operations network. Additionally, a state-of-the-art odour abatement system was installed in collaboration with global experts to ensure the best-in-class environmental compliance.

By leveraging the latest technologies available, the company believes that from the first full year of production, the Jiande plant will be one of IFF’s most resource-efficient manufacturing locations globally.

IFF’s existing plant in China will serve as its centre for training, teaching approximately 100 Chinese employees through 2018 in production skills, safety best practices, sustainability, and more. IFF’s employee base in China is the company’s third-largest globally.

“IFF has a legacy of innovation and excellence in fragrance ingredients. This long-planned investment underscores our continued commitment to providing our customers with the best possible products and service. Fully aligned with our strategic imperative to be our customers’ partner of choice, it does so as it furthers our quality, safety, and sustainability goals through the innovative use of technologies and the expertise of our people and partners,” said Andreas Fibig, IFF chairman and CEO.

“We are committed to leveraging our culture of excellence and innovation to ensure we attract the best and the brightest to IFF. The commissioning of the Jiande plant opens an exciting new chapter in our history in China and we look forward to a successful – and sustainable – future with our partners and people,” added Nicolas Mirzayantz, IFF group president fragrances.
