Takasago to open new flavor facility in Brazil

- Last updated on GMT

Flavor and fragrance company Takasago International (USA) has bought a facility in Vinhedo near São Paulo in Brazil, which it intends to upgrade in order to provide flavors to food and beverage makers throughout Latin America.

The facility will have spray drying, powder blending and liquid compounding capabilities to produce reaction flavors, botanical extractions and specialty products, the company said.

Senior vice president and general manager of Takasago Americas Brian Buck said: “Takasago has undertaken a comprehensive upgrade of the facilities which includes the latest, most up-to-date equipment for research and development, manufacturing, applications and sensory resources. By summer of this year, we will be in prime position to offer our flavor products to local and global food and beverage manufacturers in Brazil and in all of Latin America.”

The company currently has facilities in Diadema-Sao Paulo and employees from this location are expected to be transferred to the new Vinhedo site in August this year, when upgrades to the site are due to be completed.
