Takasago de Mexico opened its new creative center for flavors and fragrances in Tlalnepantla, Estado de Mexico, a region which was cited by Takasago's president and CEO as having a pattern of growth similar, if not greater, than Southeast Asia's potential.
In addition to opening ceremonies on May 11, the event commemorated the affiliate’s 35th anniversary, which is an important step in the continuous improvement of its flavor development process for bakery, confectionery, snack, beverage, dessert and dairy products as well as fragrance development for personal care and home care applications.
The center features technical enhancements for the production of spray dry powdered flavors and new liquid emulsion capabilities. It also includes areas dedicated to market research and sensory analysis.
Satoshi Masumura, president and CEO of Takasago International Corporation said: "A great deal of trust has been placed in this project since it was first proposed, not just because of growth in Mexico but through its outreach to Colombia, Peru and Central America, areas that have experienced constant, expanded growth over the last 30 years. This pattern of growth is similar if not greater than the potential growth of Southeast Asia.”
