NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 21, 2014-- International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (NYSE:IFF), a leading global creator of flavors and fragrances for consumer products, today announced the opening of a creative facility in Jakarta, Indonesia, and a sales office and applications laboratories in Santiago, Chile.

The new flavors creative center in Jakarta, which opens today, is located on an existing IFF site that has been rebuilt to double its footprint to 1,500 m2. The state-of-the-art facility will primarily support customers in Indonesia, where the Company has maintained a presence for nearly 60 years. In keeping with IFF’s commitment to reduce its impact on the environment across geographies, the building incorporates advanced sustainability principles including heat, water and emission management systems.

The new site in Santiago, which officially opens on Wednesday, November 26th, comprises sales offices and applications laboratories dedicated exclusively to meet the growing demand for flavors in Chile. The facility is approximately 300 m2, and is IFF’s first in this Latin American country.

“These facilities support our global strategic initiative to grow business in fast-emerging markets, such as Chile and Indonesia,” said Andreas Fibig, Chief Executive Officer. “Further, close proximity to our customers allows us to combine our global expertise with local consumer understanding to create unique and authentic flavor solutions. The new facilities in Indonesia and Chile underscore our commitment as a leading global partner to generate value for our flavors customers around the world.”

The Company has made several large investments to support the emerging markets over the last few years. These include an additional investment in Indonesia to build a manufacturing facility near the new creative center, and the construction of a new flavors creative center and expansion of the existing manufacturing site in Gebze, Turkey. The Company also opened a new flavors manufacturing plant in Guangzhou, China and a liquid flavors and fragrances manufacturing facility in Singapore.
