Sensient Technologies Corporation has opened a new state-of-the-art facility in Alajuela, Costa Rica. The new flavors center in Costa Rica will serve as the base of Central American and Caribbean operations. This facility includes laboratories for beverage and dairy applications and savory flavors staffed by product application teams, and a quality control laboratory. The site will also develop products for local markets by blending flavors to fit local tastes.
A Sensient business office and a culinary center for flavorists have also been opened at this site. Sales personnel and flavor technologists will be on site to service customers manufacturing beverages, savory foods, dairy products and sweets and snacks.
"This new location reinforces our commitment to service local markets by expanding geographically,” Kenneth P. Manning, chairman and CEO of Sensient Technologies, said. “We will continue to grow in order to broaden our capabilities in providing innovative and customized technical solutions to our customers."
