Jack DiMaggio will speak at the World Perfumery Congress (WPC) in Cannes, France, June 1–4, 2010. DiMaggio discusses the importance of developing markets, growing regulatory pressures and more in the March issue of Perfumer & Flavorist magazine.
“How do you bring smart and affordable product solutions to the market - that’s our challenge,” says Jack DiMaggio, managing director of global fragrances and flavors at Colgate-Palmolive Company. DiMaggio is commercially responsible for flavors and fragrances globally and their delivery into Colgate-Palmolive’s oral care, personal care, home care and pet nutrition products worldwide. The company’s approach to fragrance development combines both internal and external formulation expertise. In Paris (Bois Colombes), Colgate-Palmolive maintains perfumers who are supported by analytical, evaluation and other staff, who primarily work in tandem with external fragrance suppliers. “We like to have that internal perfumery and compounding capability because it helps us to better understand the fragrance business and stay active on fragrance and flavor issues,” DiMaggio says.
