Inspired by Nature, Protecting Nature
Organic chemistry has always been at the core of Firmenich’s science. Today, we apply green chemistry principles, which maximize efficiency and minimize hazardous effects on health and the environment, to the development and manufacturing processes of our ingredients.
Our chemists provide our flavorists and perfumers with unique ingredients that unleash their creativity and, at the same time, are safe and sustainable. Thanks to our Green Gate approach, we ensure that all the ingredients we bring to market are biodegradable and have a low environmental impact through non-bioaccumulation and non-toxicity, thereby protecting our planet.
United by the Molecule
Our organic chemists work in a dynamic, reciprocal knowledge network with experts from other science domains. What links them all is a common focus on the molecule and its olfactive footprint – from discovery to delivery for customers. We also collaborate with many external partners at the forefront of chemistry, including academic research institutions and start-ups. As a business steeped in science, with a strong record for transforming research into industry-leading molecules, Firmenich is an exciting place for ambitious organic chemists to be right now and shape the future.
