German-based Symrise is launching a production line for liquid flavorings in the Russian town of Rogovo, south of the capital city of Moscow, where the company began producing its own dry taste solutions a few years ago.

Symrise said Russian customers will now receive regionally produced taste solutions for sweet and dairy products as well as beverages. These supplement the range of dry taste solutions for snacks and ready meals.

Improved production line

The liquid flavorings from the new production facility can be used by the consumer goods industry in dairy products, beverages and sweets. This expands the target customer group, which until now mostly comprised suppliers of snacks and ready meals. At the same time, Symrise is optimizing its processes with the new production line, which manufactures products sequentially preventing cross-contamination and guaranteeing high purity in the final taste solution.

The plant will produce around 1,800 tons of flavorings per year, in containers ranging from 100 to 4,000kg.

Symrise opened its first representative office in Russia in 1995 and has been operating an application lab in Moscow since 2002. In 2011, the company was the first in the industry to start up local production in Russia, which it expanded in 2015 with a fifth production line. Now, another line is being added in the same building – with a new product offering. The technological factory equipment installed was sourced from Russia and other European countries.

Stephan Schulte, managing director of Symrise Rogovo, said, “This investment clearly demonstrates our commitment to the region and the country. We strongly believe in the positive development of the Russian economy.

“Our company got involved in the growing market early on and has successfully developed its business in Russia. Local customers have already had positive experiences with dry taste solutions from Symrise.”
