Nature is a source of inspiration in arts, sciences and technologies. At Firmenich, exploring natural products such as fruits, vegetables, spices or plants has been and continues to be a source of ideas and inspiration for the innovative creations of our perfumers and flavorists.
In order to understand Nature, our scientists use state-of-the-art analytical techniques to unravel the mysteries of precious taste and odor compounds found in natural products.
Through pioneering work on coffee, tea and different citrus varieties, new signature compounds have been found in Nature that contribute to the uniqueness and distinctiveness of our new creations for food and perfumery applications.
Our passion to discover new molecules from Nature guides us to explore the unknown, in new varieties of plants, flowers or spices.
The richness of Nature in different parts of the world and the unlimited curiosity of our scientists, coupled to the use of the most recent developments in analytical techniques allows Firmenich to discover and commercialize unique flavor and perfume ingredients that bring pleasure to millions of consumers worldwide.
