The competition was sponsored by Symrise, a global supplier of fragrances and flavourings (F&F), cosmetic active ingredients and raw materials as well as functional ingredients. With a market share of 12 per cent (2014), Symrise is the world’s third largest supplier in the F&F market. Approximately 30 000 of its products are primarily produced from natural raw materials including vanilla, citrus, blossoms or plant materials. Its flavours, substances and perfume oils usually form the central functional components of the end products produced by its customers.

The company has two divisions: Flavour & Nutrition and Scent & Care. Scent & Care is subdivided into three divisions: Fragrances, Cosmetic Ingredients and Aroma Molecules. The departments produce and sell fragrances, cosmetic ingredients, aroma molecules and mint aromas. These are used in the manufacture of perfumes, personal care and cosmetic products, cleaning products and detergents, home fragrances and oral care products.

Now in its eighth year, the NPC aims to give local and international brands that are supplied on the South African market, an opportunity to showcase their innovative new products.
