Reason 2: A unique business model

Winning business assumes: being on a core supplier list, submitting a brief, developing a solution and being selected by the customer.

Our products are unique co-creations with our customers

  • Consumer-differentiating, bespoke, value-added Fragrance & Beauty, Taste & Wellbeing solutions driven by innovation
  • Agility and service are key
  • Scent and taste determine consumer purchase and repeat decisions whilst representing only a minor fraction of costs 0.5-2.0% in flavours and consumer fragrances to 4-6% in fine fragrances, i.e. a very minor portion of the end product costs

High barriers to entry and high shifting costs for customers
