We expect Q3-21 results to confirm strong operating momentum for the sector leadership. The reopening of COVID impacted channels has led to a strong rebound in fine fragrance and out-of-home consumption. Supply chain agility and inflation recovery are points of difference in a challenging environment. Longer-term fundamental, consumer-led demand changes across nutrition (human/animal), proactive health, pet health and plant alternative platforms are expected to bear fruit. While near-term bond market vagaries may continue to shape sector price action, we maintain our long-term positive outlook for the sector.
