Givaudan opens new flavour centre in Shanghai


Givaudan opened its new flavour centre in Shanghai. According to the company, the facility is one of the most modern and complete creation, technology and production centres in the flavour industry globally. It is entirely dedicated to the Chinese market and its rising demand for flavour creations.

With its new flavour centre, Givaudan can offer the full range of services to its local and multinational clients, operating in China, comprising flavour science, creation, application, sensory, consumer insight, marketing, key account management and state-of-the-art manufacturing. The centre also houses a flavourist school, where local talent is educated and trained based on Givaudan's training programme.

The new centre is located in the Jin Qiao industrial park on a site of nearly 50'000 m2. The new production unit triples the former capacity of the Zhang Jiang site. The Zhang Jiang site is being transformed into a fragrance-only site, allowing Givaudan's fragrance operations in China to double its production capacity.

The total investment for the new centre in Shanghai is CHF 42 million. Around 180 employees will work in this new flavour centre.
