We combine expertise to provide innovative ingredient solutions and extended value propositions for the food and beverages, pet food and aquafeed industries

We make food and drinks healthier and more enjoyable, pet food more palatable, and aquaculture feed more efficient.

Sustainability is part of our DNA and at the heart of our activities.

Thanks to our 3 synergistic expertise, whether combined or not, in:



We provide and optimize taste to offer innovative flavor experiences.



We bring the right nutrients to positively impact the nutritional profile of products.



We develop health active solutions, backed-by-science and sourced from nature, to deliver specific health benefits.

As a result, we are an Augmented Flavor House expanding our horizon beyond the traditional view, creating extra value and performance along the whole food value chain.

Our unique approach

Developing unique and innovative ingredient solutions

Inspired by nature, our quest is to fully valorize our natural ingredient streams. Through state-of-the-art science and technology, we identify areas of potential in the byproducts, leftovers and side-streams in our supply chain to produce the most value possible from our natural raw materials.

This allows for more innovative, traceable and efficient solutions and delivers added value to our customers in the food and beverages, pet food and aquafeed industries. It also exemplifies our commitment to protecting the planet by decreasing our global CO2 footprint along our whole value chain. Through this full stream valorization, which adheres to the principles of the circular economy, we make a positive impact.

Chicken is one of our key illustrations on how we upcycle side-streams and unused by-products. Today, around half of the chicken is used, mainly for human food production. The remaining poorly valorized half represents an incredible source of value for Symrise. Explore in the video below the unsuspected richness of some of these parts.

As a key player in the food industry, we take pride in our duty to positively contribute to society, the environment and the economy, at each point on our value chain. In this way, we strive to make the world a better place for everyone. No matter what solution we are manufacturing or which industry we are supplying, sustainability remains a key transverse driver.
