The Indonesian facility is built on nearly 16,000 square meters of land and has become Takasago’s 12th plant for flavors and fragrances production worldwide. This factory will serve the South East Asia market with up to 14,500 metric tons of capacity a year and this is considered to be one of the most modern flavors and fragrances plants in Indonesia that will boost Takasago’s competitive edge in the industry. The company is committed to a sustainable practice and will provide job opportunities for the local community.
The company believes that the opening of the PT Takasago International Indonesia factory gives Takasago a big advantage in the Asian marketplace especially for Indonesia. By having this state-of-the-art factory, Takasago will be able to provide better services to their clients in terms of lead time, and to support the fast growing FMCG market in Indonesia.
The construction of the factory itself went smoothly starting from the ground breaking ceremony in August 2018 to the completion in 2019, with no major incident reported.
The opening of the factory was marked with an event at the site, which included the presence of Takasago’s senior executives from its headquarters in Japan, Singapore, and Indonesia as well as the local government with entertainment of Taiko and Jaipong performances. The employees of PT Takasago International Indonesia also took the stage and presented a choir performance.
