29 Aug 2014 --- Sensient Colors, a business unit of Sensient Technologies Corporation, recently announced it plans to invest and expand production and distribution facilities in South Africa to better serve this important region.

Sensient has been operating successfully in South Africa since 1995 and considers the region to be a key growth market. Business development has led to the investment decision to strengthen its offering to food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics, as well as household product customers, both locally and across the Sub-Saharan region. The construction of the new facility will position Sensient as the only international color supplier with a local sales, development, production and distribution center in South Africa.

Sensient South Africa is a level 7 BBBEE contributor and an ISO 9001:2008 accredited company. It also has FSSC 22000:2010 food safety certification 22000, a GFSI recognised certification.

Mike Geraghty, President, Color Group, Sensient Technologies Corporation, commented: “this investment will enable us to better serve our customers in the region through a direct manufacturing presence, and is a further demonstration of Sensient’s commitment to combine technical expertise and in-depth knowledge to create new opportunities around the world.”
