PARIS — Swiss fragrance and flavors maker Firmenich reported Wednesday that sales in its fiscal year ended June 30 increased 2 percent, with gains across all geographic regions.
In the 12 months, the Geneva-based firm’s revenues reached 3 billion Swiss francs, or $3.18 billion at average exchange, for the period in question. On a constant-currency basis, company sales advanced 3 percent.
Gilbert Ghostine, Firmenich chief executive officer, stated: “We crossed 3 billion Swiss francs in net sales for the first time and achieved a record level of technology-driven wins, while further affirming our thought-leadership in sustainability. Fiscal year 2015 was also a year of historic transition for us, as we welcomed four new leaders to our executive committee.”
Firmenich noted it had reached a ranking of 99A in the CDP Supplier Climate Performance Leadership Index and had certified all of its manufacturing plants worldwide in compliance with Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS 18001) and Environmental Management (ISO 14001) Systems Standards.
Also in the most recent fiscal year, for the first time, Firmenich released an integrated report outlining its business and sustainability performance.
