MANE India has embarked on a new journey towards innovation by opening its first Flavour Innovation Centre in Hyderabad.

With an investment of 3 million, the Flavour Innovation Centre measures 13,901 sq. ft. and is expected to be highly efficient in catering to customer needs across the country. The Innovation Centre is strategically located in one of India’s fastest-growing metro cities and is well connected to other parts of the country.

The Flavour Innovation Centre is a high-tech facility where customers can explore various categories of flavours, prepare pilot batches to run experiments, and taste end applications. The Innovation Centre also aims to cut down on wastage during the trial stage by offering customers the convenience of making smaller product batches for pilots. MANE flavourists can create endless varieties of flavours, ranging from sweet to savoury. The facility is outfitted with world-class equipment and infrastructure as well as a designated lab for creation, application and tasting.

The inaugural ceremony was held on 22 November 2022, which commenced with a ribbon cutting and lighting of lamps, was attended by Jean Mane - MANE Group President, Bernard Leynaud - Asia Pacific Director, Sumit Dasgupta - Managing Director of MANE India Pvt Ltd. and the MANE India team.

The programme was followed by a press meet. Jean Mane talked about the Group and MANE’s footprints in India. He spoke of the significance of the Flavour Innovation Centre in Hyderabad and of the way forward and opportunities in the Indian market. Messrs Mane, Leynaud and Dasgupta jointly answered questions raised during the press meet about MANE’s future plans in the Indian subcontinent. After the press conference, media delegates went for a walk-through of the Flavour Innovation Centre, experiencing first-hand the centre’s uniqueness and potential to satisfy customers.

Jean Mane spoke to MANE India employees and gifted each of them with a copy of the 150-year anniversary book providing insight into 150+ years of MANE’s journey. He then thanked all the employees personally for their contributions and for being a part of the Mane family.
