Takasago, the Japanese specialty supplier of flavors and fragrances, opened its European production facility for flavors in Zülpich back in 1999. Now the company is planning to expand the factory building of its development and production center by around 2,000 m². In recent years, Takasago has invested more than 35 million euros in the site. Currently, the flavor producer is one of the largest employers in the city, with more than 300 employees.

Takasago, headquartered in Tokyo, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of flavors, fragrances and other fine chemicals for food, beverages, cosmetics, personal care and household applications. In Zülpich, mainly flavors for the food industry are produced – consumers find the diverse flavors mainly in dairy products, sweets, beverages and spices.
