INNOVATING IN CHEMICAL ANALYSIS TO ENABLE EXCELLENCE IN
FLAVORS & FRAGRANCES
Innovation in chemical analysis plays an important role in the development and commercialization of new, safe, performing and sustainable flavors and fragrances.
Firmenich uses state-of-the-art analytical methods and cutting-edge instruments to discover new molecules from nature, chemical and biochemical reactions. This inspires our flavorists and perfumers to create new tonalities, taste modulators and fragrances that set marketplace trends.
We investigate the structure of delivery systems and study their behavior to optimize flavors in foods and fragrances in perfumery applications to bring freshness, impact and sensory character at the right moment to foods, beverages and consumer products.
Firmenich ensures that our products are safe and compliant with worldwide regulations, including Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), by designing and validating new analytical methods allowing the identification and quantification of restricted chemicals.
Analytical knowledge and expertise are therefore fundamental tools, fully integrated into the value chain of our business from the conception of ingredients to the delivery of benefits to our customers and consumers.
