By bringing together two purpose-driven businesses TTH is now in a strong position to enhance its positive impact on people and the planet.

We believe our combined portfolio can further unlock the sustainability potential of our taste and ingredient solutions. While we continue to strive for the highest levels of sustainability and transparency in our own value chain, we are providing our sustainability certifications to support sustainability claims of our customers’ products. And the Taste EcoFood Compass® allows us to design flavors that align with sustainability brand promises and consumer needs by measuring the social and environmental impact of our raw materials and solutions, and to share this data with our customers. With this measurement tool, we have covered more than 80% of our palette in terms of volume used in flavor solutions.

Driven by consumer preferences and health legislation, we are increasingly focusing on finding solutions that help reduce salt, sugar, and fat in everyday food, while keeping food tasty and shelf stable. In this way, we can support many people around the world who are seeking diet-related health benefits in areas such as improved immunity, energy levels and gut health – in support of Sustainable Development Goal #3: Good health & well-being.

To increase the sustainability of our global food systems, we are also helping drive the transition to plant-based proteins to enable better health while supporting the decarbonization of food value chains.

To achieve progress, we are also working closely with our customers and with industry associations, such as the Association of Manufacturers and Formulators of Enzyme Products (AMFEP) in Europe and the International Organization of the Flavor Industry (IOFI), as well as the Petfood Sustainability Coalition.
