As a global industry, we believe we have the duty to promote a positive economic, social and environmental change. Our positioning has been historically dedicated to the development of sustainable solutions: from the very beginning, we have pushed boundaries back ever further to turn side-streams into natural valuable solutions and contribute to a circular economy.
Today, we commit to address the world’s challenges with the aim of paving the way for future generations and ensuring we have a continued strong profitable growth.
Diana, as part of the Nutrition Segment of Symrise, is thus working hard to reach an optimal balance between our People, Planet and Profit.
