Treatt provides innovative ingredient solutions from its manufacturing bases in Europe and North America, principally for the flavours and fragrance industries and multinational consumer goods companies, particularly in the beverage sector.

Investment summary

Treatt has once again delivered an exceptional performance in the first four months of FY21, with strong momentum across multiple categories contributing to growth. Operating margins have benefited from the improved product mix as Treatt continues to move up the value chain and partners with its customers to develop new products. Its technical expertise is being utilised across a growing range of applications, which has led to revenue growth and margin expansion. The UK relocation project continues, with a move to the new site expected in mid 2021, and the outlook for FY21 is cautiously optimistic.
