Symrise has announced the opening of an innovation lab co-located at Colworth Science Park. The opening ceremony of the centrally located facility in the United Kingdom took place on November 18, 2021.
The on-site resources allow the local application specialists to decode the market, create taste solutions that meet current consumer trends and to deliver application products that meet customer expectations. The site will feature a flavor lab and space for exchange and co-creation.
The facility offers application labs for bakery, beverage and dairy as well as a flavor development lab. They cover a space of approximately 140 m². In addition to the lab, the location will host office space and a co-creation space. With the facility at the Colworth science park site, Symrise will support future dairy and beverage developments, as well as United Kingdom bakery manufacturers. Having an additional Symrise representation in this important location of the British food industry will enable the company to closely work with local partners and serve as an accelerator for food and beverage projects.
Frank Hoeving, managing director at Symrise UK Ltd Business Unit Savory, said, “Our state-of-the-art labs and offices will make our Colworth site the perfect location to strengthen our collaboration with the British food and beverage industry, championing a new mindset and way of working. It will strengthen our local development to support U.K. food and beverage manufacturers and producers. Also, it will enable speed and agility to align with fast-paced consumer market demands.”
