Esméralda C, Head of Quality Control Laboratories, France
Spread across 4 laboratories, around thirty staff work to carry out analyses for the manufacturing department.
The role of these teams is to check the quality of the feedstock we use and the quality of the aromatic ingredients we produce. To do this, we use specifications defined during the development of the ingredient.
Our analysts also perform all non-routine analyses needed for the smooth operation of the company (R&D, processes, regulatory, purchasing and sales).
I come from a world of aromas, fragrances and natural ingredients. After previous experience elsewhere, I joined DRT when a new position was created.
Like any new member of staff, I have benefited from multiple training opportunities. What to me seems to be extremely important in our ever-changing field (new standards, new techniques) is to be absolutely on point, staying informed and where possible, ahead of the curve.
What motivates me most in my everyday work is my colleagues’ thirst for learning.
I didn’t know anything about the company before joining. DRT is growing, with many projects and a very clear desire to continue opening up internationally and welcoming new and talented staff.
