We are impressed with Firmenich’s capabilities and efforts in introducing S6973 to clients for use in a wide spectrum of product categories. Additional orders are expected during the year.

“Firmenich is also continuing marketing activities with S2383, Senomyx’s enhancer of the artificial sweetener sucralose. S2383 can be used in foods and beverages to enable up to a 75% reduction in the concentration of sucralose, with improved taste characteristics in some applications,” Snyder explained. “It is rewarding that products containing S2383 are now on the shelves in North America. Firmenich is working with a number of clients for commercialization of other branded products utilizing S2383.
