Touching over 4 billion consumers several times a day, in more than 100+ markets: from their breakfast cereals and their coffee in the morning, to their shampoo, shower gel & fine fragrance when they go out at night.

Taste & Beyond
Through our Taste business, we create flavorful experiences for the world’s preferred household brands, spanning beverages, sweet goods and savory foods. We draw from nature’s most precious resources sustainably, to make healthy taste delicious. In 2020 our technologies enabled us to remove 150,000 tons of sugar from foods and beverages, representing over 1 trillion calories!
We are a leader in renewable & sustainable Ingredients – the cornerstone of all our creations and the foundation of our lasting success. We are committed to continually strengthening our best-in-class palette of ingredients including Synthetics, Naturals and our industry-leading White Biotech platform with pioneering bio-based ingredients, such as the recently launched Dreamwood™.
Fueling our success every day, science is our engine of growth. Since the creation of our company by a talented Swiss chemist, to our Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1939, all the way to pioneering the industry’s first white biotech ingredient in 2014, our success is rooted in world-class research.
