From the deep subtleties of semi-fermented oolong tea, to the startling freshness of an orange carbonated drink, we deliver flavor solutions to please a wide range of consumers. The fact that Firmenich has identified 800 flavor molecules in coffee is evidence of a genuine expertise in beverage.


When it comes to drinks, consumers have increasingly high expectations. Today it is about more than simply quenching thirst; it is about delivering stimulation in a sports drink, comfort in hot tea, or natural taste in fruit juice.

Our customers Working with all types of food and beverage manufacturers around the world

Firmenich creates products for our customers that perfectly meet the wants and needs of their consumers. We work with major multi-nationals, mid-size regional companies – and everything in between.

Our creation and application teams have proven experience understanding the consumer packaged goods (CPGs) industry: many Firmenich team members previously worked at CPG companies. We appreciate the challenges our customers face, and we are naturally well-placed to create the right flavor solution for a range of applications.

With a solid understanding of the technical needs and back-of-house operations, we partner with food service customers to help them develop unique menu items to delight their consumers.

In many markets, distributors are essential for us to reach smaller customers, and we have created a network of reliable, world-class distributors. We value and nurture these strong relationships so that our flavor solutions can help any local company to succeed.
