Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Lucknow -

LUC­KNOW: Re­search In­sti­tute for Fra­grance Ma­te­ri­als, Inc (RIFM), USA, a lead­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion in­volved in in­ves­ti­gat­ing global stan­dards of safety of fra­grant ma­te­ri­als signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with CSIR - Cen­tral In­sti­tute of Medic­i­nal and Aro­matic Plants (CSIRCIMAP) in Paris on Fri­day.

The MoU was signed by Jim Romine, pres­i­dent, RIFM and Prof Anil Ku­mar Tri­pathi, di­rec­tor, CSIR-CIMAP dur­ing the an­nual meet­ing of the In­ter­na­tional Fra­grance As­so­ci­a­tion be­ing held dur­ing No­vem­ber 7-9 in Paris. Prof Anil K Tri­pathi said the MoU would not only help both the or­ga­ni­za­tions to work to­gether in chem­i­cal char­ac­ter­i­za­tion of es­sen­tial oils, but also in de­vel­op­ing qual­ity stan­dards to en­sure sus­tained avail­abil­ity of safe nat­u­ral fra­grant ma­te­ri­als.

The MoU was a se­quel to the visit of pres­i­dent, RIFM and pres­i­dent, IFRA to re­search fa­cil­i­ties of CSIR-CIMAP in Fe­bru­ary 2017. Keep­ing in view the rapid ex­pan­sion of cul­ti­va­tion of aro­matic crops in In­dia un­der CSIR Aroma Mis­sion, it is ex­pected that In­dia is likely to emerge as global leader in the pro­duc­tion of sev­eral es­sen­tial oils.
