ZURICH (Reuters) – Fragrance and flavour maker Givaudan reported an 8.4 percent increase in sales during the first nine months of 2018 on Tuesday, led by a strong performance in its fragrances division.

“Givaudan continued the year with good business momentum and with the project pipeline and win rates sustained at a high level,” the Swiss company that makes flavours for chicken and fragrances for washing powder said in a statement.

The Geneva-based company posted sales of 4.1 billion Swiss francs ($4.10 billion), an increase of 5.7 percent on a like-for-like basis and 8.4 percent increase in Swiss francs.
