Synergy Flavors, Inc., a supplier of flavors, extracts and essences for the global food and beverage industry, has announced the completion of a new primary school in Antanapizina, Madagascar.

The new addition joins eight previously-built facilities funded by the company in partnership with the Madagascar Development Fund (MDF)

Synergy Flavors and MDF expanded the scope of their partnership in 2020 to include clean water accessibility as an area of focus, in addition to on-going education initiatives. The recent construction of a new well in Ambolomadinika, completed in 2020, marks the first clean-water initiative Synergy has joined MDF on.

“We have worked closely with MDF over the past five years to drive transformative change throughout Madagascar by means of education,”​ said Rod Sowders, president and CEO of Synergy Flavors.

“We’ve now widened our view to further contribute to a better world and give back to the underserved community of vanilla growers and processors by increasing access to and availability of one of the basic necessities of human life: clean water.”

The new primary school in Antanapizina was completed in 2020. Though the inauguration has been delayed due to Covid-19, the school is currently open and available for community use according to local guidelines. Additional plans to install a safe, clean water system near the new school in are currently under way.

This facility in Antanapizina joins schools in Besopaka (2016), Ambohitrakongona, (2016), Farahalana (2017), Antohomaro (2017), Antsirabe Nord (2018), Menagisa (2018), and two schools in Ambolomadinika (2019).
