Its three expert brands include Pet Food Palatability with SPF, Pet Nutrition with Nutrios and Pet Food Protection with Videka (a joint venture with Kalsec®). The company operates on five continents with 1,500 employees and 31 industrial sites around the world. Symrise Pet Food is a part of the Taste, Nutrition & Health division of the larger Symrise Group, a global supplier of fragrances, flavors, food and cosmetic ingredients.

Symrise Pet Food opened its first operations in Greenwood County in 2007.
