The rapid surge of the COVID-19 Omicron variant has created an ever-shifting landscape that requires
continuous monitoring and response. To weather and overcome this unique challenge, we remain focused on
the following:


Our associates’ safety, health, and well-being are at the forefront of our decision-making. In the early stage of the COVID-19 outbreak, we implemented a wide range of preventive measures and, so far, no one has contracted COVID from our facilities. We are committed to refining and implementing safety measures that reduce associate transmission and guarantee the safest working environment possible.


While we want to meet in person, that is not always possible. We’ve embraced a flexible mix of virtual and hybrid meetings to ensure we remain connected and engaged.

The volatility of the raw material markets has had a tremendous impact on the flavor and fragrance industries. To address this, we’ve focused on building inventories of critical supplies to ensure your products make it to the shelves on time.

We’re also monitoring demonstrations in the transportation industry that threaten to further weaken supply chains already hurt by the pandemic.


Throughout the course of the pandemic, we’ve provided a helping hand to our communities. From supporting local food drives to supplying hand sanitizer to front-line workers, we understand the importance of coming together during challenging times.

As an essential supply source to the food, beverage, health, and hygiene industries, we want to thank
all of you, our valued partners, for weathering this crisis alongside us. Your flexibility and commitment
have made all the difference, and together, we’ll keep moving forward!
