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.
