Symrise supplies fragrances, flavors, food, nutrition and cosmetic ingredients around the globe to manufacturers of perfumes, cosmetics, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and producers of nutritional supplements and pet food. Its sales of approximately € 3.4 billion in the 2019 fiscal year make Symrise a leading global provider. Headquartered in Holzminden, Germany, the Group is represented by more than 100 locations in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the United States and Latin America.

Symrise works with its clients to develop new ideas and market-ready concepts for products that form an indispensable part of everyday life. Economic success and corporate responsibility are inextricably linked as part of this process.

The company’s origins go back to the year 1874. Symrise has since grown to achieve a market share of currently 11 % – making it one of the leading suppliers of flavors and fragrances on the global market. A high level of innovation and creativity, an exact knowledge of customer needs and various regional consumer preferences as well as targeted expansion into new and promising market segments contribute to our company’s above-average growth rate. Today, Symrise has about 9,000 employees working at sites in more than 40 countries, serving over 6,000 customers in roughly 160 countries.

Since October 2016, the operating activities of the Symrise Group have been broken down into three segments: Flavor, Nutrition and Scent & Care. The divisions within these segments are organized according to business units and regions.

Each segment has its own research and development, purchasing, production, quality control, marketing and sales departments. This system allows internal processes to be accelerated. Symrise aims to simplify procedures while making them customer-oriented and pragmatic. It places great value on fast and flexible decision-making.

The Flavor segment contains the Beverages, Savory and Sweet business units. Flavor’s range of products consists of approximately 13,000 items, which are sold in 145 countries. The flavorings Symrise produces are used by customers to make foods and beverages and give the various products their individual tastes. Symrise supplies individual flavorings used in end products as well as complete solutions, which, apart from the actual flavor, can contain additional functional ingredients, food coloring or microencapsulated components. The segment has sites in more than 40 countries in Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America and Africa.

The Nutrition segment markets its nearly 2,000 products in 89 countries via four business units: Food, Pet Food Aqua and Probi. They deliver natural sensory product solutions for taste, texture, color and functionality in foods, beverages, and baby food based on backward integration processes for vegetables, fruit, meat and seafood. It also supplies natural-taste and acceptance- enhancing products for pet foods and sustainable marine ingredients for aquacultures. And there are also probiotics for foods, beverages and nutritional supplements with health-promoting benefits.
