Givaudan has invested CHF five million in an expansion of its Flavour Innovation Centre (FIC) in Singapore. The FIC is home to the Asia Pacific (APAC) campus of the Givaudan Flavour School, which is training the next generation of flavourists in the region, and the APAC Academy, which supports continuous learning.

The expanded Singapore Centre will include a new fully integrated culinary space for concept development, as well as new or expanded savoury, bakery, confectionery, beverage and dairy facilities to serve all market sectors.

The investment enhances Givaudan’s innovation capabilities in APAC, facilitating a regional focus on applied innovation, collaboration and knowledge sharing, to complement its global network. Within the FIC Givaudan flavourists will leverage the latest ingredients and technologies to develop holistic customer solutions that can go straight to market.
