Firmenich is the largest privately-owned company in the perfume and flavor business. Swiss and family owned, we have created many of the world's favorite perfumes for over 100 years and produced a number of the most well known flavors we enjoy each day. Our passion for perfumes and flavors, our creativity and innovation, together with our exceptional understanding of sensory perceptions and trends, have forged our world-class reputation. Our consistently superior investments in R&D substantiate our desire to understand, share and reinvent the best of what nature has to offer in the realms of smell and taste.

A soft drink in Mexico, a margarine in Brazil, a yoghurt in Poland, a burger in the US, a chewing gum in China, a soup in Thailand, an ice-cream in Australia or a stock cube in South-Africa are only a few of the products consumers around the world enjoy every day thanks to our flavors. We constantly challenge ourselves to elaborate a taste signature that gives a unique product identity. More than good taste, our flavor solutions are built to provide an additional touch in the form of color, texture and sensation, anticipating consumer preferences. We share our passion for taste with our clients, providing the market insights to create tomorrow's winning products; the ingredients and technologies to create the best flavor solutions for our clients' brands; and a full service - from innovation, creation and problem solving - working together for our mutual success.

By connecting with motivated students of the European Masters Degree in Food Studies, Firmenich would like to inspire them to apply their skills in a stimulating international environment.
