Matrix Flavours & Fragrances expands its manufacturing capability in Kuala Lumpur with the addition of a third manufacturing building on its current 6 acre site.
The new building of 100,000 m², is solely dedicated to the manufacturing of flavours. It comprises of three manufacturing stories, each floor to support powder, liquid production and warehousing. Its five stories of offices, now houses offices, QA/QC laboratories, sensory evaluation and training. Taking the opportunity to design-from-scratch, the manufacturing facility also houses its first semi auto-dosing machine for key compounding of flavours, and streamlining the production to move towards optimization and efficient production.

The addition of new facilities is attributed to the growing needs of the fast expansion of the company’s sales through more than 54 countries, and the development of new product ranges. Matrix offers a range of flavourings and natural flavourings, in all forms; water and oil soluble, dry-blended and spray dried powders, emulsions, seasonings and their special heat-resistant technology flavours, the emulco range.

Matrix embarked on offering natural flavours in early 2017 – a requirement for market penetration into Europe and America. Matrix also possesses manufacturing capability in Cochin, India and its sales offices in Myanmar and Belgium. The Malaysian flavour house is FSSC 22000 certified and manufactures in a fully Halal dedicated facility.

The company has been producing a wide range of flavours for more than 40 years. With 220 employees, two production sites in Malaysia and India as well as sales and marketing offices in Myanmar and Belgium, the company is active in more than 54 countries worldwide. The company’s production is completely halal-oriented and Matrix also offers a kosher range of flavours.
