    Our 2020 strategy

    Givaudan’s 2020 strategy overview

    Givaudan's 2020 strategy


    ¹ average over five years

    Building on the success over the past years, we want to create further shareholder value through profitable, responsible growth and acquisitions. To create long-term value, we will capitalise on our market leadership and, most importantly, continue to build close partnerships with our customers.

    Ambitious financial targets are a fundamental part of Givaudan’s strategy. We aim to outpace the market with 4-5% sales growth and an average free cash flow of 12-17% of sales, both measured as an average over the five-year period of our strategy cycle.


    Our 2020 strategy is built on the pillars of growing with our customers, delivering with excellence, and partnering for shared success. These pillars and their drivers for success are detailed below.
