DELIVERING A LEGACY OF LEADERSHIP
IN AUTHENTIC CITRUS
 

For more than 75 years, Firmenich has advanced its citrus tonality expertise through continued exploration, technological innovation and dedicated craftsmanship.

Our co-innovation partnerships with fruits producers and processors provide differentiating knowledge and raw materials that translate into the most comprehensive creative palette for perfumers and flavorists.
TETRAROME® is a proprietary process that yields a range of citrus extracts with unique analytical and organoleptic profiles, incredible freshness and long-lastingness to compositions, and desirable gourmand characteristics.
CITRONOVA® is a distillation process proprietary, which decreases the amount of Limonene in the extract, enabling a unique range of citrus ingredients. Available in Orange, Lemon, Lime, Tangerine and Green Mandarine, our CITRONOVA® range is popular with flavorists because its composition is very close to the original citrus oil and is also ultra cost-effective.
Firmenich also produces the highest standard of folded, colorless ingredients and fractions suitable for both common and highly specific applications. Cold-pressed and essential oils are efficiently processed to yield the most effective cost-in-use ingredients for any Fragrance & Flavor application.
