Monin Gourmet Flavorings Marks 100 Years
Monin Gourmet Flavorings, the world’s leading provider of premium syrups and flavoring products, is celebrating its centennial anniversary with special events and promotions throughout 2012.
Founded in 1912 in Bourges, France by entrepreneur Georges Monin and family-owned for three generations, Monin has built an international company renowned for its quality products, innovative marketing and exceptional customer service.
Over the past century, the company has steadily increased its international reach while remaining a family business anchored by its heritage and family values.
Georges Monin’s son, Paul, became the president of Monin in 1945 and expanded the export business throughout Europe and the Caribbean. When Paul transferred the company to his son Olivier in 1992, Monin experienced explosive growth into the global markets of North and South America, Asia, and the Middle East.
Today, with offices and manufacturing facilities in Florida, France, and Malaysia and additional offices as widespread as Texas, Dubai, and Shanghai, Monin’s distribution system to more than 140 countries is second to none.
Monin’s operation in Clearwater, Florida, is home to a state-of-art manufacturing plant, a new distribution facility and its North American office headquarters, which services 25 countries in the Americas and the Caribbean.
With a 100-year foundation of offering quality products and service, Monin is well-positioned to launch more new and innovative products for the beverage industry throughout the next century.
