Givaudan accelerates focus on speciality ingredients

16 Jan 2003

Geneva, 16 January 2003 - Givaudan and Roche have agreed to terminate supplies of sunscreen filters out of the Givaudan Vernier site by end of 2003.

This will provide Givaudan with the opportunity to accelerate the realignment of its ingredients portfolio towards higher value added aroma chemicals used as captive ingredients in perfumery and sold as proprietary specialities in the market. The realignment will have a long term positive impact on Givaudan’s performance.
