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.
