From celebrating 70 years of excellence at the Givaudan Perfumery School to expanding capabilities in integrated solutions and seeking innovation inspirations outside our Company… we have many exciting stories from 2016 that tell of our success as the leader in the global flavour and fragrance industry, and some of them can be found below.
Collaborative innovation in fragrances
Partnerships will play an increasing role as we accelerate innovation in our Company, but these collaborations to ‘bring the outside in’ may involve the surprising and unconventional, as experienced by our Fragrance teams in 2016.
Exciting trends in plant-based protein
Are you a flexitarian? You may well be, without even knowing it. Many people are turning to this approach to their diet because of health-related concerns or economic, animal welfare and environmental questions.
Global consumers are better informed and they take more conscious decisions. They understand that they have an obligation to change their purchasing behaviour: to purchase fair and responsible products.
Givaudan Perfumery School anniversary
In Grasse in, in 1946, Roure perfumer Jean Carles takes young perfumers under his wing and guides their training in what was to become the Givaudan Perfumery School.
Expanding capabilities with Spicetec
Integrated solutions is a part of our 2020 strategy that allows us to grow our business to enhance our Company’s value proposition to customers and enable new opportunities for growth.
Captivating a marvellous journey
Flavours and fragrances have helped shape the way people perceive the world and how they express themselves in the foods we savour and the aromas that surround and delight us.
Stepping out for innovation inspirations
We know our resources are not unlimited and that we have to innovate faster and in wider spaces – and the only way we can do this is through collaborative innovation.
Global change is a focus for Flavours
People are living longer and lifestyles are changing, with overweight and obesity becoming a problem in countries where traditionally they were not, and with health and well-being increasingly a feature.
Celebrating innovation in naturals and synthetics
Creativity, insight and innovation form the backbone of our culture that inspires our perfumers to create beautiful scents for customers, whether it is an exquisite fine fragrance or a long-lasting laundry detergent.
Engaging the voice of employees
What is it like to work at Givaudan? What’s being done well and where can we still improve? These are the sort of questions that can be answered only by those at the heart of our Company – our employees. Their input is vital in continuing to build Givaudan as a great place to work.
