The 2014 World Perfumery Congress exhibition provided a showcase for dozens of international ingredient suppliers and service providers to do business, network and announce new initiatives. Here, P&F provides a selection of announcements.
Agrumaria Corleone presented its organic and non-organic lemon, orange and mandarin essential oils, which were either cold-pressed or distilled. These included conca d’oro, a furocoumarin- free colorless lemon oil, and conca d’oro mandarin oil. Al-Can Exports presented its aluminum bottle packaging expertise for the essential oil, flavor and fragrance industries. All bottles were U.N.-certified (X category) for transportation and storage of dangerous goods, and Drug Master File (DMF) 111 compliant. Al-Can exports to more than 37 countries worldwide and features high-tech production equipment and customization capabilities such as spray painting, logo embossing and lacquering.
Albert Vieille presented its Café Sublimé ingredient, a coffee extract produced in cooperation with a Salvadoran partner. The extract is based on arabica coffee, which comes from bushy shrubs growing at an altitude between 1,000 m and 1,500 m on the volcanic range south of El Salvador. Coffee cherries are brought to coffee-processing units with the beans dried in the sun and roasted. The resulting extract is obtained through additional processing and filtration to create an alcohol-soluble coffee ingredient that is rich and intense.
