“We are focused on key growth categories for the next two to three years,” said Bertram, “combining our already established strengths in citrus, vanilla and our health and wellness brand … with our newly acquired seasonings and dairy flavor technology assets.”Flavor portfolio: The company has grown its competencies to include citrus, dairy, savory, seasonings, vanilla, and encapsulation and applications technologies. The Chr. Hansen purchase grew Symrise’s range in snack, meat and dairy flavors and technologies. Dairy assets include milk, cream and butter flavors, starter distillates, dairy building blocks, and enzyme-modified cheese flavors. In addition, the company increased its snack and meat flavor products.
Facilities: Meanwhile, Symrise has grown its flavor development and applications activities with the addition of a meat laboratory. This facility provides a venue for finished product run tests, pre-scale-up. The company hasalso expanded its savory, seasonings and sweet applications and development laboratories. As the integration progresses, the Teterboro, NJ, headquarters will remain the liquid flavor production and R&D center. The Branchburg, NJ, site will remain focused on reaction flavors and power blending. Finally, the Elyria, OH, facility will serve as the company’s seasonings center.
“We are a global organization,” said Bertram, “as well as a full service provider at the regional/local level, with a focus on maximizing our portfolio; creating new innovation and technology; and growth.”
