Every one of the 30,000 different Symrise products is subject to strict sustainability requirements. We develop individual sustainability concepts for every strategic product group – a unique approach in our industry. We concentrate our research and development activities particularly on the creation of products that contribute to satisfying basic human needs. Here an important focus is on green chemistry, natural raw materials and resource-efficient production processes along with innovative technologies.

Good manufacturing practice is the global basis for responsible behavior with products and manufacturing processes. These guidelines steer quality control for both production processes and the production environment and apply to the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and active ingredients as well as for cosmetics, food and animal feed products. They are defined by the laws governing pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and foods.

Many requirements apply across product groups, such as quality requirements, clear product labeling and hygiene requirements. Moreover, legislators have passed corresponding regulations that define requirements specifically for individual product groups. Here, Symrise particularly differentiates between the product groups flavors, pharmaceutical agents and pharmaceutical additives as well as cosmetic active ingredients and raw materials.
