Indena Tours: the first twenty years

Indena's production site in the French city of Tours celebrates its twentieth anniversary

Indena is about to mark an important milestone as one of its main production sites in the French city of Tours celebrates its twentieth anniversary.

The manufacturing site has been part of the IdB Holding Indena Group since 1995, although the company’s close association with France dates back to 1972 when the commercial branch in Paris was created.

The Tours facility is emblematic of Indena’s savoir-faire in terms of quality and the standardisation of extracts, focusing particularly on polyphenols.

Here many of the well-known high quality extracts that are rich in polyphenols are produced for the health food, pharmaceutical and personal care markets. Some 130 people are employed at the production site, which processes more than 6000 tons of raw materials per year.

The Indena SAS plant obtained GMP compliance from the French Health Ministry in 2003, HACCP certificate in 2007, KOSHER certification in 2009, HALAL certification in 2010, ISO 14001 certification in 2012 and FDA compliance for food products in 2013.

'Indena has always been committed to excellence, aiming to be recognised in the field of botanical derivatives as the partner of choice for companies aiming for the highest level of quality and innovation,' commented Luca Giorgetti, Managing Director at Indena. 'With more than 90 years of expertise in research and innovation, Indena is able to ensure high quality standards that only few companies in the world are able to match. These values are embodied in Indena Tours where personnel on a daily basis are committed to achieving the company’s goals.'

Indena Tours celebrated its 20th anniversary with a special open day on 21 November, dedicated to all its employees and their families.
