Firmenich has opened a plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which will serve more than 100 customers across 10 markets globally, significantly increasing Firmenich’s footprint in Argentina.
“We have been in Argentina since 1956 and our multi-million dollar investment in this cutting-edge plant, underpins Firmenich’s long-term commitment to our customers in the region to deliver the most innovative, consumer-focused fragrance and flavor solutions in the market,” said CEO Gilbert Ghostine.
With this new facility, Firmenich aims to strengthen its market leadership in fragrances.
For flavors, the objective is to drive growth through the company’s leading Taste Modulation portfolio TasteGEM, which helps restore the taste profile of food and beverage products with reduced sugar, salt and fat.
Firmenich’s TasteGEM portfolio is already manufactured in Argentina.
