Doug Tough, Chairman and CEO, IFF.

SINGAPORE: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc opened a new state-of-the-art liquid flavours and fragrances manufacturing plant in Jurong, Singapore. The higher-capacity, 12,000 square metre facility is part of a previously announced $100 million investment in Greater Asia and replaces the company’s existing plant in the same area. The new plant has a production capacity of up to 20,000 metric tonne over time.

Along with manufacturing, the plant will provide support to the company’s centre of excellence for functional fragrances, which is housed in IFF’s nearby Science park creative facility. In keeping with the company’s commitment to reduce its impact on the environment, the plant was built with automated processes that dramatically minimizes usage of water, energy and cleaning chemicals.

“Our continued investment in the Greater Asia region reflects our confidence in the future growth opportunities in this market both for our customers and for IFF,” said Doug Tough, Chairman and CEO, IFF.

“We are committed to providing our customers with world-class support - the finest flavours and fragrances created under the most demanding quality standards to better serve our Asian customers. We are honored to further build on our over 40 year history in Singapore as an active supporter of its economy,” continued Tough.

“Singapore is delighted that a market-leader like IFF has chosen to establish its state-of-the-art green manufacturing facility and centre of excellence for functional fragrances in the country. This validates our pro-business environment and robust intellectual property protection for companies such as IFF to undertake proprietary manufacturing activities that will help them win in Asia,” said Tan Choon Shian, Deputy Managing Director, Singapore Economic Development Board.
