13 Sep 2017 --- Synergy Flavours has doubled the size of its operation in Bangkok from August 2017, following the opening of a dedicated technical and manufacturing facility in Thailand in 2013. Synergy, which is owned by dairy and whey protein expert, Carbery, has developed a strong customer base in countries across Asia since it first entered the market with a Thai technical center in 2009. 

The addition of more office, laboratory and production space at Synergy’s regional base in Samut Prakarn, Bangkok, will accommodate business growth and will be achieved during three phases of construction, due to start shortly.

The Thai factory offers blended powder and liquid flavor production facilities, in addition to sweet and savory flavor creation and application laboratories. It also provides a full range of technical, warehousing and customer support services.

Steve Morgan, Managing Director, Synergy Flavours, Europe & Asia commented: “Our investment so far in Asia has really paid off thanks to the dedication and commitment of our team in Thailand and our partners around the region. Having strong manufacturing and technical capabilities on the ground in Asia has meant we can be flexible, responsive and cost-competitive, which, along with the quality of our products and our strong dairy and flavoring heritage, has clearly impressed our customers.”

Geoff Allen, Managing Director, Synergy Favours (Thailand) Ltd., added: “Continued investment into our Thai regional hub will mean we can deliver more flavor solutions to more customers around the region for use in local products – from Hokkaido milk tea, to pad cha instant noodles, cheese dips and savory snacks – and in an array of products for both the local market and export. Thailand is the ideal location for us thanks to its first-class infrastructure, which connects us to the rest of Asia-Pacific. It also has a highly skilled workforce with a large number of food science graduates – and of course, a rich food culture and heritage that inspires us on a daily basis.”

Synergy has commercial representation elsewhere across the region, with partners in Malaysia, The Philippines, Taiwan, China, Japan and Vietnam.
