Brazil: Sensory training for elderly women workers

Sensory panellist as an alternative income generating activity.


The job market isn’t easy and finding paid work can prove especially challenging for people nearing retirement age. This can be even more complicated for communities facing difficulties finding work due to a lack of formal education.

To address this, we helped Givaudan volunteers from São Paulo, partner with a local sensory company to train a group of women above the age of 60 with no formal source of income, to the role of sensory panellist. The participants will receive a professional training in the field of fragrances and flavours. Following its completion, the women will be put in touch with organisations interested in hiring them.
