The group’s second facility in the country will be used for both its fragrance and flavour divisions
Iberchem Group is today announcing the opening of a new fragrance and flavour creative centre strategically located in Goregaon, Mumbai.
The facility will host the activities of both Iberchem (fragrances) and Scentium (flavours). This significant investment reflects India’s importance to Iberchem Group, which already has a production centre in Ahmedabad, launched in 2010. Once fully operative, the new facility will host a full team of laboratory specialists, perfumers, flavorists, and sales representatives.
"The new creative centre in Mumbai reflects Iberchem Group’s global business strategy to strengthen its presence in fast-growing markets such as India," said Ramón Fernández, CEO of Iberchem Group.
"It has been designed to support long-term business growth in the country, while also supporting the worldwide operations of the Group. Furthermore, not only it will enhance the collaboration between our teams and our customers, it will also help us in achieving even shorter lead times in the delivery of local projects.”
"By opening a second facility, Iberchem India reaffirms its commitment to meeting rising customer demand for leading technical services across the Indian sub-continent," added Nikesh , Managing Director of Iberchem Group in India.
"The centre will be instrumental in supporting our customers locally with olfactive and taste expertise, thus offering closer collaboration and creating true consumer-preferred fragrances and flavours to differentiate their products in the marketplace."
It is the second facility launched by the Group following its acquisition (70%) by French global investment company Eurazeo in 2017.
After opening another creative centre in Bangkok, Thailand, Iberchem Group also announced the acquisition of the South African company Versachem in May 2018 as part of its current expansion plan.
