"We are very pleased to broaden our March 2006 collaboration with Ajinomoto to include the U.S. and Canada in addition to the previously licensed Asian markets," said Kent Snyder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Senomyx. "North America is an important strategic market for our flavor ingredients and we are pleased to collaborate with Ajinomoto on developing commercial applications there.
"Ajinomoto is a leading worldwide manufacturer of food and culinary products. It is gratifying that they have chosen to further their partnership with Senomyx," Snyder noted. "Senomyx has product discovery and development collaborations with seven of the world's foremost packaged food and beverage companies: Ajinomoto, Cadbury Schweppes, Campbell Soup, Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, Nestl?, and Solae. Our amended agreement with Ajinomoto is another example of a partner that has expanded its collaborations with us. We believe it is a testament to our progressive working relationships and the increasing value of our proprietary technologies when our world-class collaborators strengthen their relationships with Senomyx," Snyder noted.
