Due to its core business and use of natural raw materials, Symrise plays a key role in promoting sustainable agriculture and food security.
Our backward integration strategy allows us to make a direct contribution to environmentally friendly, socially responsible agriculture. Projects in cultivation areas provide communities with knowledge about healthy nutrition and help to develop community capacities and thus ensure that everyone in the community has enough to eat. For instance, agricultural diversification and the rice credits made possible by Symrise have a direct impact on preventing hunger in Madagascar. A higher income is also an important foundation for better nutrition, making it an essential goal in collaboration projects with small-scale farmers.
