Sensient Flavors has begun operation as its new pilot plant in Bremen, Germany. The facility will produce emulsions, compounds, fruit preparations and beverages, and the facility’s development process was created to work in close collaboration with customers and offer trial runs that enable the company to optimize production processes.
Sensient Flavors technical director Steffen Sonnenberg said of the new facility, “We are extremely pleased that our pilot plant is now fully operational. With its small production run capability, we are able to test our recipes during the development process and optimize them for industrial scale production. Product development takes less time and the need to make revisions is minimized. With this new test plant, we can provide our customers with an efficient development process in which they are actively involved, as they have the opportunity to attend trial runs and make joint decisions.”
