Beverages

From the deep subtleties of semi-fermented oolong tea, to the startling freshness of a crisp carbonated drink, we deliver flavor solutions, beyond taste, to please a wide range of consumers.

The fact that we have removed over 150,000 tons of sugar from beverages this year, representing 600 billion calories, is testament to our commitment to enhancing consumers’ wellbeing around the world!

Our customers Working with all types of food and beverage manufacturers around the world

Firmenich creates products for our customers that perfectly meet the wants and needs of their consumers. We work with major multi-nationals, mid-size regional companies – and everything in between.

Our creation and application teams have proven experience understanding the consumer packaged goods (CPGs) industry: many Firmenich team members previously worked at CPG companies. We appreciate the challenges our customers face, and we are naturally well-placed to create the right flavor solution for a range of applications.

With a solid understanding of the technical needs and back-of-house operations, we partner with food service customers to help them develop unique menu items to delight their consumers.

In many markets, distributors are essential for us to reach smaller customers, and we have created a network of reliable, world-class distributors. We value and nurture these strong relationships so that our flavor solutions can help any local company to succeed.
