The forthcoming earnings season will capture the dovetailing of two trends – the persistence of COVID behaviours and the re-opening trade. Fundamentals are underpinned by a sustained renovation cycle (natural, clean label), a new wave of functional-rich product introductions (immunity, natural extracts) and the emergence of more holistic, sustainably-led innovation agendas (integrated supply chains). The global Fragrance and Flavour (F&F)/Ingredients leadership continues to address the market opportunity with a pro-investment mindset, broadening toolkits (technology) and deepening customer relationships (co-creation), evidencing model durability. We expect the Q2/H1 results to confirm positive operating momentum with upbeat commentary on commercial pipelines. We remain bullish on the sector’s long-term prospects.
