Our new flavor center in Tunis is a testimony to the substantial growth Scentium has been experiencing in recent years, both locally and globally. It represents a cornerstone of our global expansion plan. It will allow us to offer faster production and delivery times to our local customers, who were previously looked after from our head office in Spain. It will also provide them with additional sales and technical assistance.”

It is fully equipped for the production of liquid and powder flavours as well as emulsions. Our new subsidiary also benefits from modern laboratory installations with tasting rooms and application labs.
