"Firmenich's exclusive partnerships with Senomyx give us a competitive edge in developing new flavors and are an example of our passion for breakthrough ideas," stated Patrick Firmenich, Chief Executive Officer of Firmenich. "The combination of Firmenich flavors and Senomyx Sweet Enhancers will enable us to help our clients improve the nutritional profile of their products, without compromising on taste. We thus expect these innovative Sweet Enhancers to enrich our offerings to our clients and further expand our market coverage."
In January 2008, Senomyx and Firmenich entered a first collaborative research, development, commercialization and license agreement for novel flavor ingredients intended to provide a cooling taste effect. The collaboration aims to identify novel cooling flavors that do not have the limitations of currently available agents. Senomyx and Firmenich signed a second agreement in November 2008, under which Firmenich has exclusive rights to commercialize Senomyx's novel S2383 flavor enhancer which reduces the need for sucralose in beverages, foods and oral care healthcare products.
