Press release
Avignon, 1st October 2012

It is with great sadness that Naturex announces the passing of its Chairman and Founder, Mr. Jacques Dikansky, this weekend after a long period of illness, surrounded by his children and family.

A true entrepreneurial spirit and a talented visionary, Jacques Dikansky was a source of inspiration for his employees with whom he shared his passion for the industry of plant-based natural ingredients for more than 20 years. His keen sense of strategy and the quality of the acquisitions he successfully completed contributed to transforming Naturex over this period into the global leader in speciality plant-based natural ingredients.

All Naturex's 1,300 employees join the members of the Management Committee and the Board of Directors of the Company in expressing their sincerest condolences to Mr. Jacques Dikansky's family and close relations.
