Dear readers,

For many years, the three pillars of growth, efficiency and portfolio have formed the basis for the successful and sustainable strategy at Symrise. This basis allowed us to even continue growing during the crisis year of 2020. Symrise increased its sales by 3.3 percent in 2020 and is thus once again growing faster than the market.

Your daily commitment contributes to the sustainable growth of Symrise. I would like to thank all of you for this on behalf of the entire Executive Board. In order for us to continue along this successful path together, we will also invest in our company in 2021. Beyond this, Symrise continues to grow through selected strategic measures such as the acquisition of Sensient Fragrances and Aroma Molecules, the expansion of production capacities, and investments in digitalization and infrastructure – as well as through our successful partnerships with customers and suppliers.

In this issue of Team Spirit, you’ll read about the areas where Symrise has expanded and made improvements. You’ll also learn about employee contributions to these successes, true to our guiding principle: “Always inspiring more …”

I hope you enjoy this issue!

Heinz-Jürgen Bertram
