GENEVA – In response to increased demand for its taste solutions and to keep up with its industry-leading growth rate, FONA International will begin a significant expansion of operations at its headquarters in Geneva, the company announced in a news release.
Construction and expansion is already underway at the family-owned creator and manufacturer of taste solutions.
The work, led by Schramm Construction, will feature an expansion of proprietary taste technology, the addition of several high-capacity spray dryers, and the hiring of several new production personnel, the release stated.
