International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) has broken ground on a flavors and fragrances plant in Sri City, Andhra Presh, India, the company announced. The move is part of a larger investment in Greater Asia.

The facility will be the largest IFF site in Greater Asia, at 32-acre/130,000m2 plot, and will serve the company’s customers throughout the country and the region. It will also be the largest flavor and fragrance manufacturing facility in India and is expected to be commercialized by December 2019.

Features will include rainwater harvesting capabilities, low-consumption LED lighting and a maximization of natural daylight, in an effort to increase sustainability.

Coupled with our excellent consumer insights teams and their deep understanding of the local markets, we are well-positioned to live up to our promise to be our customers’ partner of choice.”
