Symrise has added extraction capabilities for botanicals and vanilla at its Teterboro, New Jersey facility. These new capabilities will allow for shorter lead times and more efficient supply chains, as well as increased flexibility regarding extract format.
“This new local capability allows us to support clean label, pure and natural claims ranging from light and floral essences such as orange blossom to energizing extracts such as guayusa and gate to classic staples such as coffee or oakwood extracts,” said Michael Falkenberg, senior category director for beverages and savory. “Our botanical extracts will work well in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic applications, whether it’s high proof spirits or low alcoholic hard seltzers. Even the emerging cold brew coffee segment can benefit from these extracts.”

Carol McBride, category director, sweet, added: “Vanilla is one of the most important ingredients in the world. It is relevant in confectionery, dairy and bakery products. This is the third location in the world that Symrise has for manufacturing vanilla extracts, using beans sourced from Madagascar and India. The new enrichment technology allows us to capture the volatiles in the concentration process, and add them back into the extract, making this a real differentiator for us in the marketplace.”
