Butter Buds Inc., a global leader in dairy and non-dairy concentrates, released a video highlighting how the team’s application experts help food manufacturers overcome formulation challenges. The team shares insight into new food innovations made possible as Butter Buds continues to push the boundaries of flavor technology, with clean label, organic and dairy alternative solutions for today’s marketplace.
“In order for us to compete in today’s challenging marketplace we must provide value and formulation solutions for our customers,” said Michael Ivey, National Sales Director, Butter Buds Inc. “We work hard to ensure our products are delivered on-time while remaining flexible to customers’ needs. We pride ourselves on the expertise our formulations team brings to the table. The investment in our new state-of-the-art lab and test kitchen facility really helps our customers stay ahead of the competition with a consistent flow of new ideas and innovations.”
The Butter Buds video also highlights the history of the company and its evolution into a leading label-friendly butter and cheese flavor solutions provider.
“The original idea was to create a substitute for butter, that replicated the function of butter but in a concentrated form,” said Ivey. “Real dairy has multiple sensations, so you get the richness, fattiness and sweetness and flavor of the butter. Our products emulate natural butter compared to working with a flavor house where you get more of just that top note. Our experts know how to ask the right questions when working with our customers, making sure we really understand what you are trying to achieve, finding out what is the matrix of the product that we are looking at so that we can quickly solve the issue and get products to market quickly.”
