In response to rising demand for Flavours in savoury, dairy and beverage applications, Givaudan has opened a new state-of-the-art spray dry facility in Indonesia to enhance its capabilities across the ASEAN market.

Representing an investment of CHF 24 million, the new facility at Givaudan’s Cimanggis site will bring production closer to customers, and place it among the most technologically advanced Givaudan sites in the region. Production will begin transferring to the new site immediately.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Givaudan CEO, Gilles Andrier, said: “Givaudan has a long history in Asia and we are dedicated to making significant investments to further expand our production, creation and application facilities here. We aim to be the best partner for customers, providing them with innovative flavour solutions that best meet local consumer taste preferences.”

Rising customer demand for Flavours in dry applications is leading to increased demand for spray dried Flavours across Asia. The investment in Cimanggis delivers both conventional and the latest Ultraseal spray dry capabilities which will help Givaudan faster meet customer requirements for savoury, dairy and beverage applications.

Givaudan’s regional Commercial Head of APAC, Monila Kothari said: “Our enhanced production capabilities in Indonesia, coupled with our consumer understanding, will allow us to strengthen the development of flavours that meet Asian consumer preferences.”
