Welcoming our new GBS delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur
We officially opened our new Givaudan Business Solutions (GBS) delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur at the end of 2017. The centre is strategically situated in Malaysia to take advantage of its talent and technology.
Delivering excellence in manufacturing operations
The Flavours manufacturing network has 34 manufacturing and six distribution sites which produce hundreds of thousands of tonnes of ingredients and finished products each year.
Adding vibrancy with freshness flavour solutions
We all know that ‘first burst’ of freshness in foods, the vibrancy of freshly added ingredients. But it’s a joy that may not always be there, especially in convenience foods.
MassChallenge: strengthening collaboration
Becoming a founding partner of MassChallenge Switzerland in 2016 was a key step for us in fostering a culture of open innovation. It’s a great opportunity to connect and collaborate with hi-tech start-ups that could transform our business and shape the future industry landscape.
DreamScentz™ offers sweet (smelling) dreams
Waking from your night’s sleep feeling relaxed, revitalised and refreshed may no longer be just a dream, thanks to research from Givaudan that demonstrates the power of fragrance in improving the quality of sleep.
Sourcing for shared value
Givaudan is committed to ensuring that all of our raw materials are produced in a way that respects both, people and the environment. Our comprehensive approach, sourcing for shared value, builds on this long-term commitment to sustainable procurement practices.
Creating mutual value
Close collaboration with suppliers and driving cross-divisional synergies are two factors enabling us to create new value.
ONE Givaudan Onboarding new employees
Our people bring enormous value and strengthen our business. This is why it is important for us to integrate our new employees from the very start. We are committed to providing a solid foundation to set them up for success.
Engaging creativity in attracting talent
Designing engaging material to attract today’s talent and finding ways to strengthen our employer brand in a creative way, has helped promote Givaudan as employer of choice – both on a global and local level.
lifestyle@givaudan – it’s a winner
If you were lucky enough to visit our site in Dubai during 2017 you might have been surprised to see employees dressed in the national costumes of countries around the world, or cycling ‘around the world’ (statically), or even watching a movie. You might have even noticed them dancing, or cooking, or in yoga and meditation sessions.
We have many exciting stories from 2017 that tell of our success as the leader in the global flavour and fragrance industry.
