International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF) has opened what it describes as a new state-of-the-art liquid flavors and fragrances manufacturing plant in Jurong, Singapore. The higher-capacity, 12,000-square-meter facility is part of a previously announced $100 million investment in Greater Asia and replaces the company’s existing plant located there.
The new plant, with production capacity of up to 20,000 metric tons over time, was designed using industrial best practices in all aspects of its operation, allowing the company to maximize productivity and efficiency while maintaining high product quality. In keeping with IFF’s commitment to reduce its impact on the environment, the plant was built with automated processes that minimize usage of water, energy and cleaning chemicals. All wastewater is treated on site to the highest industrial standards and the plant generates minimal solid waste. In addition to manufacturing liquid flavors and fragrances for the Greater Asia region generally, the plant will provide support to the company’s Center of Excellence for Functional Fragrances, which is housed in IFF’s nearby Science Park creative facility.
