Fueled by competitive drive and more than 170 years’ worth of experience in the flavor and fragrance industry, Robertet managed to conquer major milestones in a time of uncertainty, including the acquisition of Ecom Food Industries of Toronto, Canada. Ecom aligns with Robertet’s product line, comprising all-natural, botanically sourced ingredients.

Robertet’s president of the fragrance division, Christophe Maubert, joins Perfumer & Flavorist+ to weigh in on the company’s biggest accomplishments and key trends shaping the industry as a whole, as well as company operations.

President, Fragrance, Robertet

What was your company’s biggest business accomplishments in the last year?

We continue to invest strongly in the field of naturals, where we retain a significant competitive advantage. Finalizing the acquisition of Sirius and bringing our market share in organic ingredients above 25% on the global scale will add value across our divisions. Also, the recent acquisition of Ecom Food Industries complements our current capabilities and strengthens our competitive advantage in natural raw materials.

I would also be inclined to say that one of our biggest accomplishment is to have kept the company’s turnover stable organically during the past year.
