NEW YORK, US: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc (IFF) has opened two new facilities in China. A flavours manufacturing facility in the Zhangjiagang Free Trade Zone and a Natural Product Research lab, located in the Nanjing Life Science Park.

The flavours plant is the company’s second in China and is designed to supplement IFF’s existing flavours and manufacturing operations in Guangzhou. The Naturals Lab is the company’s first outside of the US.

The Zhangjiagang site spans 66,800 sqm, encompassing the main manufacturing building that is fitted with a strong odour control system, quality control labs and an ambient warehouse for goods. Aligned with IFF’s commitment to sustainability, this facility is designed to have zero liquid discharge by reusing all water on-site, and is built to LEED Silver qualifications. The site will initially focus on powder flavour production with additional flavour technologies coming on line in a phased approach.

The Natural Product Research lab is approximately 520 m2 and is equipped with state-of-the-art systems for the research and development of flavours from natural sources. The lab is strategically located to leverage the botanical supply chain, biodiversity, and accumulated botanical and phytochemical knowledge prevalent throughout China’s expansive history.  

“The opening of these new sites will support our efforts to be a partner of choice and to grow in this exciting region. Our presence in China allows us to better serve our Chinese customers and focus on driving differentiated products within the broader Greater Asian market and beyond,” said Andreas Fibig, Chairman and CEO, IFF.

“With this new world-class facility, we are well-positioned to meet the current and future needs of our customers – and do so in a responsible and sustainable manner. We are proud to build on this legacy with our growing presence in China and look forward to being a strong corporate neighbor in our new homes within the Zhangjiagang Free Trade Zone and the Nanjing Life Science Park,” added Matthias Haeni, Divisional CEO, Taste.
