T. Hasegawa USA announced plans to open a 60,000-square-foot facility in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. in March 2022. The new facility will augment T. Hasegawa’s manufacturing resources in the US market by 50% and expand the company’s capabilities in sweet flavor production and technology. While T. Hasegawa will continue operations from its US corporate headquarters in Cerritos, Calif., the company will shift current manufacturing from its Southern California facility in Corona to the larger plant in Rancho Cucamonga.

In addition to boosting the square footage dedicated to flavor manufacturing and expanding T. Hasegawa’s technical capabilities, the new facility will increase T. Hasegawa’s US-based staff, with many new positions opening to service the production of food and beverage flavors.

The new facility will primarily service the production of sweet food and beverage flavors, and feature state-of-the-art equipment, with large capacity equipment for liquid blending, spray dry technology for powdered flavors, and extraction equipment for flavor extractions.

T. Hasegawa’s new manufacturing facility is being constructed with a specific focus on environmental protection, as part of the company’s global commitment to sustainability. This includes facilities that meet or exceed compliance with local regulations and feature state-of-the-art air cleaning and filtration systems, including regenerative thermal oxidizers and catalytic oxidizers, consistent with T. Hasegawa’s current manufacturing facilities.
