Mission Oriented Company

A Company with a Mission

Bedoukian is a mission-oriented company and that mission is to serve the flavor & fragrance industry with the most innovative and highest quality products and service while contributing to the well-being of our employees, our community and our environment.  

Our high-quality products and service are the most apparent aspects of meeting our mission.  Maybe less visible, but as important, are the steps we take every day to help the world in which we live.  Bedoukian joined EcoVadis and constantly implements programs to improve our sustainability.  Bedoukian participates in the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and we are member of SEDEX (the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange). We are a dedicated participant in both local and industry organizations to promote the well-being of the industry and of the public.

Our employees gather in front of a sign for the food bank - one of the many organizations supported by this mission oriented company.

Responsible Sourcing, Care for the Environment and a Focus on Sustainability

We know that our customers, and their consumers, are demanding products that do not negatively impact the environment and Bedoukian has made this a priority for our company as well.   To better help you identify our ingredients with a high percentage of renewable carbon, we have created a web page where we list all of our current sustainable ingredients.  And, as we develop more sustainable ingredients in the future, those will also be added to this page.

Bedoukian sources thousands of raw materials from suppliers throughout the world.  As a mission-oriented company, our procurement team continually seeks to identify suppliers that offer the same level of integrity and commitment to the environment that we have. 

Bedoukian is steadfast in improving our environmental footprint and we continually take steps to develop a more sustainable manufacturing process.  We are committed to supporting our environment as we seek ways to decrease manufacturing waste, reduce energy consumption and produce sustainable ingredients for our customers.  We have implemented a solvent recycling program and our Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer will reduce our air emissions.  We even recycle the k-cups our employees use for their coffee.

Respect For Others in All We Do

From the beginning, Bedoukian Research has instilled in its culture the highest level of ethics and fairness.  Not only will Bedoukian Research and its employees adhere to the laws pertaining to the countries where we are doing business, but we will, at all times, demonstrate the highest levels of integrity, truthfulness, and honesty.  We seek to be transparent in all our transactions and relationships so that we uphold both personal and corporate reputations with the goal of inspiring confidence and trust in all we do.  With all of our business relationships, we seek to uphold the important reputations of both the company and the Bedoukian family. Our goal is to inspire confidence and trust in all we do.

Giving Back in Many Ways

Bedoukian’s mission-oriented philosophy is most evident in the steps we take to build a better world.

One example was when Bedoukian used its expertise and facilities to produce hand sanitizer for the local hospital when coronavirus first began impacting the health and lives of everyone.

In another step to support the over-burdened health care workers, Bedoukian Research financially supported programs to demonstrate appreciation to the dedicated workers at our local hospital. We helped fund Zen Dens for moments of relaxation and have also funded ice cream breaks for the fun and enjoyment of these tireless workers.

For years, the company has also organized work days at CT Foodshare, an organization committed to helping with food insecurity in the state of Connecticut.

Bedoukian Research also supports other organizations that improve our local communities and the company encourages employees to volunteer their time and expertise. Dr. Robert Bedoukian himself has chaired the Nuvance Health Network Council on Innovation and Research and has served on the Board of Directors for Ability Beyond and Regional Hospice – important organizations serving the communities where Bedoukian Research is headquartered.

The company, and the Bedoukian family, have also contributed financially to a variety of local, national and global organizations.
