Symrise’s corporate strategy is founded on the three pillars of growth, efficiency and portfolio. Symrise aims to become the most successful company in its industry, to strengthen its market position and to secure its independence. The company is aware that economic success and social acceptance are inextricably linked. The corporate strategy thus incorporates aspects of sustainability at all levels in order to enhance the company’s value over the long term and minimize risks. The economic goals of the company are linked to actively taking responsibility for the environment, employees and society.
Symrise works with its clients to develop new ideas and market-ready concepts for products that form an indispensable part of everyday life, such as perfumes, personal care products, detergents and household cleaners, beverages, snacks and confectionery. At Symrise, an important part of value creation is developing products that provide an additional benefit for the consumer. Symrise thus offers taste solutions that make it possible to reduce the sugar or sodium content in food as well as moisturizing cosmetic ingredients that allow the amount of preservatives in care products to be reduced.
