Cargill Opens Flavor Site in China

Posted: March 31, 2010

Cargill (Amsterdam, Netherlands) has opened a new flavor manufacturing plant in Pinghu, China. The facility is located adjacent to the company’s existing starches and sweeteners plant.

Of the new facility, Peter Michielsen, head of Cargill Flavor Systems, said, “This latest venture demonstrates our commitment to being a worldwide partner for our flavors customers as we now have one or more manufacturing sites in each regional market. Crucially, the plant will enable us to react even faster to the needs of our customers, whether local Chinese manufacturers, or global customers with sites in China … At Pinghu, in particular, we will apply our knowledge in connecting base raw materials with speciality ingredients such as flavors.”
