Givaudan SA said Wednesday that net income and sales rose in the first half, with positive business momentum and growth across most segments and regions.

The Swiss flavor-and-fragrance company said net profit in the period ended June rose to 481 million Swiss francs ($524.1 million) from CHF413 million in the period a year earlier.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization increased to CHF809 million from CHF734 million while sales climbed 7.9% to CHF3.37 billion on a like-for-like basis.

"As the Covid-19 pandemic continued to have an impact on a global level, Givaudan sustained good business momentum whilst maintaining its operations and global supply chain at a high level," Givaudan said.
