Symrise is set to launch a new laboratory in Nigeria, according to a report published by Vanguard.
Located in Lagos, the R&D facility will open at the end of this week, and represents an increased commitment to the East African market as well as providing the flavors and fragrances firm with the ability to cater to local desires.
“The new facility will allow for local development, by local application technologists, with local sourcing wherever possible,” Rudy McLean, Managing Director Symrise Nigeria told Vanguard. “It also allows us to continuously build our knowledge around dynamic consumer preferences, so that Symrise is the preferred partner for holistic solutions that meet consumer expectations, within the ambit of the consumer brief. The lab facilities will offer our customers the chance to tap in our technical expertise and facilities, as many customers in the region do not have their own labs.”
