Givaudan, the flavours and fragrances manufacturer, has unveiled its first-ever integrated fragrance encapsulation centre in Singapore, furthering its investment in the Asia Pacific region.
The Swiss franc CHF30m location will combine research, fragrance creation, production and industrialisation capabilities into one site, allowing Givaudan to meet growing consumer demand for long lasting fragrance experiences as well as enabling faster response times to requests from customers in the region, said the Swiss company.
The new location will also focus on developing biodegradable fragrance ingredients and has been designed with responsible energy consumption in mind, earning Singapore’s Green Mark Gold certification for environmentally friendly environments.
