Symrise demonstrates robust and sustainable supply chain for high quality diana food strawberry ingredients

To help meet the demand for strawberry consumption and application, Symrise has developed a broad diana food portfolio of strawberry ingredients that includes powders, flakes, crunchies, and crunch’flakes.

To deliver a broad portfolio of high-quality strawberry ingredients, Symrise has built a worldwide network of sourcing capabilities. At present, the company responsibly sources strawberries from Chile, Morocco, Spain, and Italy. This global strategy enables Symrise to provide a broad range of strawberry ingredients meeting different features whether it relates to competitiveness, a specific quality such as infant food, or a specific certification such as organic, which requires a composition up to 100% from fruit or diverse organoleptic properties. It also ensures a reliable supply chain all year long. Symrise’s long-term relationships with farmers, supported by regular visits and audits from our in-house agronomists, guarantee the high quality of the selected fruit, the full traceability of agricultural practices, and the ability to supply certified ingredients that meet the client’s specific needs.

Symrise product brochure for the diana food portfolio enables customers’ product development teams can more easily identify the strawberry ingredient that best suits their functional and sensorial requirements.

The company also produced a video, “The Iconic Strawberry: A Global Favorite, from Soil to Spoon”. The video focuses on sourcing and highlights the specific, long-term partnerships the company has entered into with strawberry farmers in Chile. The video features direct commentary from some of these farmers about the keys to their relationship with Symrise, including their ideal climate conditions, reduced agro-chemicals treatment, interactions with company agronomists, and proximity to the production plant.
