One of the world’s first suppliers of herbal extracts and natural flavourings and an expert in Italian profiles, Janoušek was founded in Prague in 1883 by Josef Janoušek and has had a home in Trieste, Italy since 1900.  As well as serving customers in Italy for over 135 years, Janoušek also operates across Southern and Eastern Europe.

Janoušek is now a Synergy Flavours company (uk.synergytaste.com), part of the Carbery Group –  a leading international manufacturer of speciality food ingredients, flavouring systems and an award-winning cheese producer, owned by four Irish dairy co-operatives.

Synergy Flavours also has a long tradition in flavours and flavour solutions.  Its products include natural flavours, essences, an extracts portfolio and a heritage in dairy processing in Ireland and vanilla extraction in the US.  Its flavour creation and application capabilities span the globe – with commercial, manufacturing and technical support facilities in Ireland, the UK, the US, Brazil, Thailand, Mexico and now Italy.

Synergy Flavours is strongly positioned to support customers across the world, regardless of borders or geography. The Janoušek site in Trieste provides Synergy Flavours with direct access to much of Europe and the Middle East and is a strong base to support flavour and natural ingredient manufacturing for customers across Italy and the wider region.
