Givaudan has opened a fragrance encapsulation center in Singapore, offering Asian customers a complete range of olfactives.

The CHF 15 million facility includes four levels of production technology, warehousing and distribution, as well as a dedicated lab specializing in the development of long-lasting fragrance solutions. The space enhances the capabilities of Givaudan’s existing creative center, production hub and perfumery school, which opened in 2015.

“The new fragrance encapsulation center in Singapore will be a key driver in achieving our 2020 strategy,” Maurizio Volpi, president, fragrance division noted at the facility’s opening ceremony. “By being close to our customers and their key growth markets, our team in Asia will be well equipped to provide holistic fragrance solutions. As we propel the encapsulation business forward in Asia, Givaudan is investing significantly in both the development of the current technology and in new biodegradable capsules for categories such as fabric or personal care.”

Regional head of fragrances for Asia Pacific Ben Webb added: “We are looking forward to collaborating even more closely with our customers using this added capability which complements our fragrance offerings in the region. With our innovative encapsulation technology, consumers in Asia will be able to experience the fragrances they love for longer.”
