'I feel delighted to speak at the Symrise Annual General Meeting for the first time as the Group's CEO,' said Dr. Jean-Yves Parisot. 'We offer our shareholders good opportunities for successful business development, also amid ongoing global uncertainties. Our diversified portfolio, our high level of innovation and our global positioning contribute significantly to this. Our pioneering role in sustainability represents a further key to our success. We want to continue intensifying our efforts in this area until we have achieved net-zero status at all levels by 2045.'


In his presentation to the nearly 350 shareholders present, the new CEO started with a look at the 2023 fiscal year. The year turned out a successful one also with its geopolitical uncertainties. It produced stable organic sales growth of just under eight percent. Both divisions (Taste, Nutrition & Health as well as Scent & Care) recorded significant growth.

 

In his outlook for the 2024 fiscal year, Parisot stated that Symrise feels confident that it will be able to continue along this successful course. In the first quarter of 2024, the Group managed to increase sales by just under 11% compared with the first quarter of 2023. Overall, Symrise is aiming for organic growth of between five and seven percent this year. This would place the company at a faster growth rate than its respective market. To increase profitability, the company has also launched an efficiency program worth EUR 50 million.
