Company invests additional CHF 30 million to support growth ambitions in China and meet consumer demand for healthier products
Givaudan, the world’s leading flavour and fragrances company, has officially inaugurated a new extension to its Nantong manufacturing facility aimed to support the capacity on liquid flavour production for beverages, dairy and sweet goods.
This move will double the Company’s flavour production capacity in China. The CHF 30 million expansion brings the Company’s total investment on the Nantong facility to CHF 80 million.
The new 16,000 square metre addition to the original site will enable Givaudan to meet the growing demand from customers in the food and beverage segments in China. About 95% of the total production capacity will support customers in China.
The Nantong manufacturing facility will strengthen the Company’s existing capabilities in savoury and culinary flavour blends, snack seasonings, spray dries and liquid flavours. About 150 people are currently employed on site of which a large majority have been recruited locally.
