Investment to taste: Azelis unveils regional innovation centre

When it comes to innovations in the food and beverage industry, formulations play a pivotal role in drawing consumers to novel experiences. As an increasing connected world brings different pockets of flavours around the world, producers are seeking solutions that can meet consumer demand of unique sensory experiences.

Azelis, an innovation service provider to the distribution industry of specialties and food ingredients, recently inaugurated its regional innovation centre (RIC) for food and nutrition in Singapore. With this new facility, the company aims to deliver formulations and nutritive solutions to producers locally and in the region.

“Strategically located within Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific, Singapore offers advanced capabilities and facilities to operate, along with a supportive government,” shared Laurent Nataf, CEO and president Asia Pacific of Azelis. “Singapore is where Azelis Asia Pacific’s regional headquarters are located, and as a strategic move, Singapore also acts as the functional hub for the rest of the region. We have also positioned Singapore as the financial, supply chain, and innovation hub for the region, bringing together our local offices’ expertise in those domains and creating further value for all our stakeholders, employees, customers and principals.”

The opening of the RIC, more importantly, underlines the company’s strategies towards innovation and growth. As the Asia-Pacific food and beverage industry continues to flourish, with start-ups and established names seeking new solutions, the opening of a facility such as Azelis’ will enable the introduction of fresh ideas and creations serving consumer demands.
