See G4-LA14/LA15 and G4-EN32/EN33

We source animal raw materials and byproducts exclusively from suppliers that comply with European laws and local regulations regarding animal welfare. Symrise does not slaughter nor transport any animals.

In the Flavor & Fragrance industry, raw materials of animal origin are generally only used in very limited quantities. By contrast, poultry, pork, beef and fish are an essential component of the products made by Diana for pet food. In most cases, only byproducts (mainly from the food industry) are used. Using byproducts from local sources ensures the utmost raw-material efficiency and that food waste is substantially reduced. Furthermore, we founded the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef together with other companies in 2015. The goal is to continually improve the value chain for beef.
