Practising the art of flavour
Givaudan Flavours encompasses a world of endeavour to bring a diversity of flavours to consumers seeking rich, innovative taste sensations.
A rich heritage of growth
For over 250 years, the long journey to the modern day international flavour and fragrance industry is punctuated by ground-breaking milestones that lead to Givaudan. From our historic roots in Grasse in 1768 to the acquisition of Vika B.V. in 2017, Givaudan has pursued an historic policy of invention and acquisition, of creativity, passion and innovation, always with an eye to the future, enriching the world of scents and taste.
The essence of us
Creativity, insight and innovation. We foster a vibrant culture to ensure all our perfumers are constantly inspired to craft beautiful creations for our customers and millions of people around the world.
Creating scents for personal and home care
Laundry that smells fresh, and stays soft. A kitchen that smells clean, and keeps its sheen. Shampoo that smells great, and enhances shine. Personal, home, fabric and oral care products have a tough job to do. They need to smell great, and perform well, too. They demand a special synergy of art and science.
Driving sustainability to new heights
The logistics of moving products from A to Z is a complex matter, as you would expect, for an international company such as Givaudan.
It’s a matter of fluidity
We all take water for granted: from our morning shower to the refreshing litres we drink every day. Water goes well beyond meeting our personal needs though: it is essential to the smooth running of cities, towns and businesses.
Workshopping a new mindset
Change the way you look at things, and everything can be seen differently. Givaudan's Energy Workshops are now making staff see energy usage in a new light.
