Bell Flavors & Fragrances is excited to announce its 2016 Spark trends for flavors and fragrances. Spark is a manufacturer’s resource for consumer and flavor trends and inspirations. Using a unique process, Bell uncovers new “sparks” for 2016 and can help customers translate these insights into winning product concepts.

This year’s flavor discoveries are all about authenticity and seasonality balanced by the big global flavors that consumers crave. Bell has identified five up-and-coming Spark Flavor Trends:

The Well-Traveled Kitchen: India
The contradicting and intoxicating flavors of India tease with their allure of spice, warmth, cool and freshness. The Well-Traveled Kitchen: India features Indian snacks and flavors inspiring fresh applications and adaptations for American consumers’ cultured palates.

The Well-Traveled Kitchen: Cuba
As the relationship between Cuba and the US improves; there is more opportunity for US citizens to visit. But before you go packing your bags, take a look at all the new flavors you’ll experience in the blistering streets of Havana and more.

Seasonally Inspired
No need for a farmer’s almanac. This seasonal eating guide shows the way to fresh produce especially when it comes to layering calendar ripe flavors on to new applications.

Global Street Food
Digging deeper into global tastes, this trend offers insights into the world’s flavors lining city streets featuring the likes of Morocco, Germany, Quebec, Vietnam and Mexico.

Homage to the red, white and the new, celebrating flavors that scream nostalgic and regional. Recalling the recipes of hometowns and dinner tables, these classic builds are rejuvenated with modern twists to please generations to come.

“We are thrilled to launch our next round of Spark trends to ignite your creativity and inspire your senses for product development,” says Kelli Heinz, Bell’s director of marketing and industry affairs. “Bell’s trend program has evolved over the years to become a dynamic program that analyzes different data points and generates trend insight for flavor and fragrance predictions and concepts. We are excited to ‘spark’ your interests!”
