Takasago expands in Indonesia with the opening of its 1st plant in November
The Takasago Group, a leading global player in the flavor & fragrance segment, has officially opened its first plant in Indonesia in November 2019 with a combined investment of US$25 million.
This investment is its largest commitment in Indonesia, which is also the world’s 4th most populated country. Takasago chose Indonesia due to its stable economy, good infrastructures coupled with its strategic location making the country the most promising market in ASEAN.
The facility is located on a 16,000 sq.metre site, making it Takasago’s 12th plant for flavours and fragrances production worldwide. This factory will also serve the Southeast Asian market with up to 14,500 metric tonnes capacity annually, and is expected to be one of the most modern flavours and fragrances plants in Indonesia that will boost Takasago’s competitive edge in the industry. Takasago is also committed to sustainable practices and will provide job opportunities for the local community.
The commencement of the PT Takasago International Indonesia factory gives Takasago a big leap in the Asian marketplace especially for Indonesia. By having this state-of-the-art factory, Takasago will be able to provide better services to its clients in terms of shorter lead time, and support the fast growing FMCG market in Indonesia.
The factory construction phase went smoothly starting from its ground breaking ceremony in August 2018 to its completion in 2019.
The opening of the factory was officiated by the presence of Takasago’s senior executives from its headquarters in Japan, Singapore, and Indonesia, as well as representatives from the Indonesian government.
Takasago International Corporation was established nearly 100 years ago, and has successfully become one of the leading companies in the flavours and fragrances industry; with some of the world’s most renowned manufacturers in its customer portfolio. The Takasago Group maintains offices, production sites, and R&D centres in 27 countries and regions; and this year marks its accelerated expansion in the Asian region. For the financial year ended March 2019, Takasago reported sales revenue of Yen 150.5 billion (US$1.37 billion).
