3. We are working with the right suppliers in the right way

„At Symrise, we are assuming responsibility that goes beyond the company itself. We take our customers and consumers, our employees, society and the environment into consideration.“
The 30,000 products we manufacture start life as approximately 10,000 mostly natural raw materials. Our commitment to sustainability and backward integration means that our customers are able to meet the growing demand for responsibly sourced ingredients. Whether we’re dealing with vanilla farmers in Madagascar, the French beetroot growers or the communities sourcing valuable cosmetic ingredients in the Amazon, we place sustainability measures at the heart of everything we do. It’s best for our business and it’s best for the world we all want to live in.

We operate our business through three segments

Within our value chain, we place great emphasis on fast and flexible decision-making. That is why each of our three segments, FLAVOR, NUTRITION and SCENT & CARE, extend across their own research and development, purchasing, and production as well as sale of products and solutions. This system allows us to accelerate internal processes and to simplify procedures while making them customer-oriented and pragmatic.

Our unique portfolio for a fragrant and delicious life

Our Flavor segment produces delicious tastes for food and beverages. They go into end products as well as complete solutions, which, apart from the actual flavor, can contain additional functional ingredients, food coloring or microencapsulated components.

Our Nutrition segment enriches foods and beverages with taste, texture, color and functionality and provides solutions for baby and pet food. Sustainable marine ingredients for aquacultures help meeting the protein demands for a growing population. In addition, probiotics for foods, beverages and nutritional supplements address health-promoting benefits.

The perfumers of our Scent & Care segment compose aromatic ingredients into fascinating fragrances. Their perfume oils go into perfumes, personal care and household products. Within this segment, we also offer refreshing mint flavors for oral care applications. Our cosmetic ingredients are used in everything from cosmetic products with multifunctional benefits to sun protection solutions. The segment also produces special fragrance & flavor ingredients and fine aroma chemicals of particular quality. These aroma chemicals are used both in Symrise’s own production of perfume oils as well as marketed to companies in the consumer goods industry and other companies in the fragrance and flavor industry.
