Symrise opens production facility in Brazilian Amazon Region

Symrise has inaugurated its new production plant in Belém, Pará, in the Amazon region. The aim of this new facility is to facilitate the production of raw materials sourced from the Amazon area. The Symrise Amazon Ecoparque will also act as a research and development platform to create new cosmetic ingredients for global use. Symrise invested over 5 million euros to build its production plant on an area of 2,000 m2. The location was chosen in the north of the Amazon region in close collaboration with Brazilian cosmetics giant Natura.

Symrise has inaugurated its new production plant in Belém, Pará, in the Amazon region.

At this facility, we intend to bring the richness of the Amazon rainforest to the world’s beauty consumers. This is an important step to sustainably developing and producing ingredients for cosmetics and fragrances. We would like to thank the local communities, the city of Benevides, the State of Pará as well as our partner Natura for the opportunity to make this vision in the Amazon region of Brazil a reality,” said Achim Daub, President Scent & Care at Symrise, during the opening ceremony.

Actually, the new facility provides access to a rich variety of plants that are native to the Amazon region and utilizes sophisticated, sustainable technologies so as to minimize the impact on the environment. For instance, Symrise uses its patented SymTrap technology to produce oils and butters. The air conditioning in the buildings runs on geothermal energy and botanical mineral filters purify wastewater and rain water for production.

In addition, Symrise promotes the economic and social development of local municipals. The company supports already over 2,000 families in the region by working with them on the cultivation and harvest of raw materials. “Symrise appreciates how Natura works in the Ecoparque and thus contributes to regional social and economic improvement. That is why we decided to partner with them on this project,” said Ricardo Omori, President Scent & Care Latam at Symrise. “We will learn what fundamental elements are needed for such co-operations and use the insights around the world to combine sustainability and economic success. Thus, we can offer our customers efficient services for profitable growth.
