Dr. Bertram, this corporate report is entitled “Unfolding Strengths.” What does that mean for you?
In addition to diversifying our portfolio, over the years we’ve also significantly expanded our access to key raw materials and markets around the world. We’ve also developed additional know-how with new business units and thus established a significant focus on sustainability. In this way, we’ve created a blueprint for our industry: Symrise is a company that knows exactly where its raw materials come from and develops innovations that increase customer benefits and cover even more market segments. We serve the entire family, from small children to adults, with our products. Not to mention pets. Through our work in recent years, we’ve generated strengths that are already bearing fruit today and we want to develop them more effectively in the future.
