THE WHAT? Givaudan has opened its newest state-of-the-art fragrance production facility in Changzhou, China. The fragrance and flavor supplier said that China remains a key growth market for innovative and consumer-preferred fragranced products.
THE DETAILS Costing more than CHF 100 million to build on a site spanning 76,000 square meters, the new plant boasts an advanced auto-dosing system and meets the highest global and local standards in fragrance manufacturing. It will substantially increase the company’s existing manufacturing output as well as contribute to its ambitious climate action agenda.
Yaling Li, Head of Fragrances China and Korea commented: “Expanding our manufacturing capabilities builds on our current creative centre and production facility in Shanghai, as well as the recently acquired drom creative centre and production site in Guangzhou, giving Givaudan an unparalleled footprint in China. We are very well positioned to offer our customers a comprehensive end-to-end solution for the region in the creation, development and production of fragrances that consumers love.”
THE WHY? Givaudan CEO, Gilles Andrier said, “Opening this production facility in China – an important high growth market – demonstrates our commitment to our customers, and aligns to our 2025 strategy and purpose. This investment will strengthen our position as a strategic partner to our customers in the region and will cater to the increasing consumer demands for great smelling sustainable fragrances.”
