A love affair with citrus: An inspiring consumer trend

Consumers love citrus. From oranges and lemons to grapefruit and limes, citrus is used every day in juices, fizzy drinks, tea and cooking. It is truly a global flavour favourite.

Connect, chat and change at key events

Givaudan’s presentations at the World Perfumery Congress and the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit in 2014 spoke of a future with challenges, but one where our industry is coming up roses. Here we explain why attending these events is so important.

Doing more to impact less

2014 saw another strong set of results against our 2020 eco-efficiency targets. When Givaudan began its sustainability journey at the turn of the century, eco-efficiency was central to our efforts. As global awareness around climate change passed from scientific communities into popular consciousness, we recognised the part we had to play in minimising the effects of CO2 emissions.

Can a face cream save the planet?

From face creams to new fuels, the fascinating world of natural bioscience holds exciting potential for the future. Few people know that the cutting-edge research into active cosmetic ingredients based on bioscience is also incubating new and exciting options for our world’s fuel and resourcing challenges.

Healthier choices, rich in possibilities

Health and wellness remains a key pillar of Givaudan’s corporate strategy, and lies at the heart of our sustainability efforts. 2014 saw Givaudan launch its latest addition to the TasteSolutions® portfolio, which has driven flavoursome, healthier eating options in the 21st Century. TasteSolutions® Richness goes some way to seeking out the ‘Holy Grail’ of flavour in readymade, processed foods, namely the recreation of rich, authentic ‘homemade’ taste sensations.

AIM-PROGRESS: collaboration, compliance, and continuous improvement

AIM-PROGRESS is a global framework for multinationals, mainly fast moving consumer goods companies, which have joined forces in the name of responsible sourcing. For many of these large-scale consumer goods producers, raw materials form the backbone of their business, and these natural resources must be sourced, grown and harvested in a responsible manner along their supply chains.

ECVAM and OECD adopt Givaudan’s KeratinoSens® assay

For decades, the issue of animal testing on cosmetic products has proven an ethical dilemma for companies and consumers alike: whilst effective testing can ensure safety for products intended for human use, the practice of using sentient creatures for commercial gain has proved divisive and controversial.
