logo_nactis_flavours-642x394Nactis Flavours, the aromatic raw materials, flavours and aromatic ingredients expert, has just completed a new strategic acquisition with the aromatic raw materials portfolio of PCAS.

One year after acquiring the Belgian subsidiary of the Robertet Group, Robertet Savoury, Nactis Flavours strengthens its product portfolio again. The PCAS aromatic raw materials range will complement its Synarome brand, specialised in aromatic raw materials and distilled essential oils.

PCAS Group, specialised in Pharmaceutical Fine Chemicals and Specialty Chemicals, decided to divest this part of its business as it was no longer part of its strategy. PCAS is quoted on the Euronext Stock Exchange and is headquarted in Longjumeau, France. Products currently made in PCAS Bourgoin-Jallieu plant will be transferred to Nactis Flavours Chartres plant in France in the heart of the Cosmetic Valley.

These new raw materials will drive innovation by offering new flavour compositions opportunities. Nactis Flavours allocates close to 7% of its annual budget to R&D, and was rewarded with the bpifrance’s label “Innovative Company”. A new R&D centre of excellence is under construction in its Bondoufle headquarters, near Paris.

“These new activities will allow Nactis Flavours to become one of the leading European manufacturers of niche aromatic molecules”, says Hervé Lecesne, President and founder of Nactis Flavours. On that occasion, the company will also increase its production and R&D capabilities to expand its production of aroma chemicals and advanced aromatic raw materials, including through biocatalysis in the future.

Nactis Flavours team in charge of the Synarome brand will present the extended range at the World Perfumery Congress (WPC) next June in Florida.

Since 1998, Nactis Flavours creates and offers taste and functional tailor made solutions to the food and perfumery industries. Nactis Flavours has five production sites: in Belgium and in France, four international subsidiaries and agents in 50 countries. The Group employs 245 people and has revenues of €50 million of which 40% internationally.
