Sensient upgrades U.K. plant

Milwaukee-based Sensient Technologies Corp. has begun the next phase of a series of investments to improve the infrastructure of its United Kingdom flavor facilities.
The current $6.4 million investment will improve efficiencies and work flows for the production of Sensient Natural Origins botanical extracts at its Bletchley, U.K., facility. The Sensient Natural Origins line captures the natural flavor and aroma profiles of original botanicals that are used in a wide range of applications in beverage, sweet, savory and dairy products.
The investment is part of a multiphase capital plan, expected to total over $20 million, that will improve facilities and production areas of existing sites in the U.K. Future improvements include upgrades to existing laboratories and offices as well as process improvements to flavor production facilities.
Kenneth Manning, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Sensient, said, "These investments reinforce our commitment to long-term business growth in the U.K. Our new state-of-the-art flavor facilities will service our customers locally in the U.K. and elsewhere. We now have 75 locations in 35 countries providing flavors, fragrances and colors to customers throughout the world."
Sensient is a global manufacturer and marketer of colors, flavors and fragrances.
