Azelis Opens New Smoke Production Facility in Denmark

Azelis has opened an extraction and distillation plant to produce smoke flavors. This new facility is one of the few units in the world producing highly concentrated smoke flavors for a range of food applications, including blends and sauces, the company notes. The new plant consists of distillation columns, storage, blending, a laboratory, and office facilities covering a surface of 6,500 m². It is located in an industrial area close to Copenhagen, Denmark.

Azelis sells its smoke flavors under the Scansmoke brand. The use of Scansmoke allows producers to optimize their production process and gives them the possibility to create a smoky undertone in various food applications, making it possible to reduce the addition of salt in the final recipe.

The Azelis smoke facility is furthermore one of the few units in the world producing highly concentrated smoke flavors.
