Synergy Flavors is building a new flavor innovation and manufacturing campus in suburban Chicago. According to the company, the new campus will sit on 15 acres of land and will utilize an existing building that will be modified and expanded into a 125,000-square-foot facility. The facility will be designed in parallel with LEED Certification Standards governed by the Green Building Institute to align with Synergy's Sustainability Platform. Synergy expects the facility to be fully operational by the end of 2012. The campus will feature an Innovation Center which will include flavor and applications development labs, a demonstration kitchen, sensory testing labs, and analytical and pilot plant facilities. Operationally, the expanded facility will include new automation to improve liquid processing and packaging efficiencies. Synergy will be adding further capabilities in dry production as well, including substantial expansion of its spray drying facility. Synergy Flavors, Inc. is a subsidiary of Carbery, an international nutritional ingredients and cheese manufacturer.
