The world’s biggest flavour and fragrance company has invested S$7m (US$5m) to expand its flavour innovation centre in Singapore.

The centre will be home to the Asia-Pacific campus of the Givaudan Flavour School, which sets out to train the region’s next generation of flavourists.

The expansion will include a new integrated culinary space for concept development, as well as new or expanded savoury, bakery, confectionery, beverage and dairy facilities.

It augments Givaudan’s R&D operations in the region to bring a “focus on applied innovation, collaboration and knowledge sharing, to complement its global network”, the company said in a statement. 

The expansion of the Singapore flavour innovation centre supports our strategy of investment in high-growth markets, and builds on our recent developments in Japan, Pakistan and India,” said chief executive Gilles Andrier. 

It demonstrates our continued commitment to growing with our customers and providing them with differentiated flavour solutions for consumer preferred products that meet local market needs.”

The facilities will help Givaudan to tap into regional trends such as the needs of a middle-class concerned wth health and wellness that do not want to compromise on taste, he added.
