With this expansion, Sensient Technologies Brazil, a business unit of Sensient Technologies Corporation, strengthens its presence in colors and flavors in the Brazilian market, provides greater flexibility and local production capability to service food and beverage manufacturers, and improves lead times to customers. The new location will allow Sensient Technologies Brazil to expand its services in sales and technical support with highly specialized research, development and applications related to colors and flavors.
Kenneth P. Manning, chairman, president and CEO of Sensient Technologies Corporation, said, "This new facility will enhance Sensient's ability to participate in the expected growth of the Brazilian market.
