Company Report

We Expect Wide-Moat Symrise To Continue To Deliver Industry-Leading Top-Line Growth

Symrise is one of the four largest companies in the global flavour and fragrance industry. It creates bespoke flavour and fragrance formulations from over 10,000 natural and synthetic raw materials for its customers, which manufacture consumer staples such as food, beverages, and household-care products. F&F companies occupy a strong position in the value chain because their products make up only a small portion of the final product cost but play a decisive role in a consumer’s purchasing decision.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Early expansion into nontraditional flavour and fragrance businesses has boosted Symrise's growth profile.

Bears

Raw material inflation has damped margins in 2022 and 2023 due to the time lag to push through price increases.
