Ambitious 2015 financial targets

In 2010, Givaudan set itself ambitious mid-term financial targets. By executing our five-pillar growth strategy, we deliver on these goals: sales and market share gains that outperform the underlying market growth, achieving industry-leading EBITDA margins, an annual free cash flow (FCF) of 14-16% of sales, whilst returning over 60% of FCF to shareholders.
