Spicetec brings complementary capabilities to Givaudan with its strong portfolio of spices, seasoning blends and natural solutions.”

Mauricio Graber, President of Givaudan’s Flavour Division, says: “Combining Givaudan’s leading flavour expertise with Spicetec’s portfolio of products will enable us to deliver a broader range of solutions to our customers in processed meats, savoury retail and foodservice.
