The firm has ear-marked £4.1M ($6.4M) to improve efficiencies at its Natural Origins botanical extracts plant at Bletchley. The facility produces natural flavour and aroma profiles of original botanicals used in a wide range of applications in beverage, sweet, savoury and dairy products.
Also planned as part of the investment programme are upgrades to its laboratories and offices and further process improvements to its flavour production facilities.
Kenneth Manning, chairman, president and ceo of Sensient Technologies Corporation, said:“These investments reinforce our commitment to long-term business growth in the UK.
“Our new state-of-the-art flavour facilities will service our customers locally in the UK and elsewhere. We now have 75 locations in 35 countries providing flavours, fragrances and colours to customers throughout the world.”
