ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS.

On October 24, 2013, Sensient Technologies Corporation ("Sensient" or the "Company") issued a press release to announce that its Board of Directors has amended the Company's Corporate Governance Guidelines to include a director resignation policy for directors in uncontested elections. The press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Pursuant to the policy, any director nominee who fails to receive in an uncontested election a greater number of votes "for" his or her election than votes "withheld" from such election must tender his or her irrevocable resignation to the Board. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will act to determine whether to accept the director's resignation and will submit such recommendation for consideration by the Board, and the Board will act on the Committee's recommendation. The Committee and the Board may consider any factors they deem relevant in deciding whether to accept a director's resignation. Generally, any director who tenders his or her resignation pursuant to the policy shall not participate in the Committee recommendation or Board action regarding whether to accept the resignation offer (unless three or fewer directors were not required to submit their resignation under the policy, in which case all directors may participate in the Board action regarding whether to accept the resignation offers).

The foregoing description of the Company's director resignation policy is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such policy in the Company's Corporate Governance Guidelines, a copy of which is available at the Company's website www.sensient.com by following the links to "About Sensient" and "Corporate Governance."
