Annual report
2018

Developing resources— In 2018, ­Symrise again experienced strong growth. One of the reasons for this success is the company’s strength in using its resources in a highly target­ed way – be it the right investments at the right time, the development of our own talented employees or responsibly handling important raw mate­rials, especially at a time when materials essential for the industry are becoming increasingly scarce. Symrise has planned ahead and used backwards integration for important raw materials or established long-term and trustworthy partnerships with suppliers – thus continuing to measurably strengthen the sustainability of sourcing.
