DELHI, INDIA — International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. has opened a new facility in Delhi to service companies that provide food and beverage products to the Indian market.
“Our increased presence in India furthers our ongoing strategy to expand our geographic reach and create infrastructure to serve emerging markets, especially those enjoying the most dynamic growth rates and demographics,” said Doug Tough, chairman and chief executive officer of I.F.F. “I.F.F. has an 80-year history in India, and we are pleased to expand our activities in this attractive region. This new facility, together with our other investments in India and China, underscores our faith in the region, the strength of our Asian teams, and our unwavering commitment to serve our customers’ present and future needs.”
The investment in India follows I.F.F.’s announcements that it will open a creative center in Shanghai, a major upgrade to the creative center in Mumbai, and the groundbreaking of two new manufacturing plants in Asia — a flavors production facility in Guangzhou and a liquid flavors and fragrances compounding site in Singapore. The company also recently opened a new facility in Dubai and expanded CapLock capacity in its Haverhill, U.K., plant.
