Givaudan has officially opened a new CHF 2.9 million ($2.89 million) commercial and development centre in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Givaudan claims that the new 2,600-square-metre facility will enable the company to offer a full range of flavour and fragrance development capabilities in a single Indonesian location for the first time.
According to Givaudan, the facilities will enable the company to better serve customers across a wide range of food and beverage segments – such as sweet goods, savoury, snacks and beverages –and Givaudan says that the investment demonstrates its commitment to the Asia Pacific region.
The opening ceremony for the new facility was attended by Givaudan’s chief executive officer Gilles Andrier, Givaudan country manager for Indonesia Fernando Balmori, and dignitaries such as Swiss ambassador Kurt Kunz and Luthfi Mardiansyah, chairman of the Swiss Chamber of Commerce.
Andrier said: “Our new state-of-the-art centre in Jakarta is another example of our 2020 strategy to invest in high growth markets.
“It will enable us to build closer partnerships with our customers, deliver stronger collaboration on flavour, taste and fragrance concept development and a faster response to the needs of the Indonesian market.”
Givaudan first entered Indonesia in 1993, and the company manufactures a range of liquids, powder blends, spray dry flavours and fragrance liquid compounds in Cimanggis, West Java.
