Delivering excellence in manufacturing operations
The Flavours manufacturing network has 34 manufacturing and six distribution sites which produce hundreds of thousands of tonnes of ingredients and finished products each year.
This is a vast network and every improvement in efficiency, responsiveness, quality, sustainability and safety helps us move towards greater excellence in manufacturing operations.
Flavours Operations uses Lean methodologies to simplify processes and reduce waste, helping our teams to deliver efficiently and effectively. Our operations costs, for example, are now the lowest they have ever been.
In 2017, our Operations teams in Singapore and São Paulo, Brazil were both awarded Lean Silver-Gold certification, the first Givaudan Flavours manufacturing sites globally to achieve this accreditation.
