Flavor Producers, LLC, headquartered in Valencia, Calif., completed an expansion project in Sharonville, Ohio, that includes more than 6,000 square feet of new application development, sensory, pilot plant product development capabilities and an additional 1,700 square feet for customer collaborative rapid prototyping workspace for food and beverage innovations.
“This is a very exciting achievement in our company growth journey,” says Tony Moore, Chief Innovation Officer. “Our Flavor Creation, Application and Sensory Teams have needed more space to execute on our extensive customer joint development opportunities as well as additional equipment to accelerate our newest technologies including advances in cleaner label plant-based carriers for natural and organic powdered flavors using Oatz™, created from oat fiber, and Peelz® , which includes upcycled citrus peels while discovering and introducing new technical advancements in taste for spiritless beverages targeted for wellness and younger consumers.”
As a founder and innovator in natural and organic plant-based flavors, Flavor Producers has continued to innovate in natural and organic new product development through Tasteful Technologies® and Transparent Technologies™ that are designed to provide greater clean label options for the modern health-conscious consumer.
“Flavor Producers has expanded our customer innovation capabilities,” adds Michael O’Neill, Chief Executive Officer at Flavor Producers. “We have invested in the expansion of our application research footprint in Ohio by creating a dedicated Innovation Center that includes additional application development capabilities for bakery, confection, plant-based dairy alternative beverages/frozen desserts, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage products along with scale up capabilities and a new sensory testing center to support our ongoing customer demand to deliver clean label taste systems in food and beverages,” he adds.
The latest flavor creation innovation includes Spiritless technologies with a new flavor and extract toolbox that incorporates the authentic grain flavors expected of traditional spirits while adding more layers of complexity in sensory characteristics to meet consumers’ expectations for this newest category within beverage development.
Tony Moore adds, “Our extensive understanding and success with formulating natural and organic flavors for alcoholic beverages over many years has served us well to create a more authentic experience for the customer and elevate the category for the consumers who are looking for a spiritless, alcohol free, beverage that requires a slow sip and an unexpected maturity in profile. We have studied the tools and added new technologies to identify more authentic taste options for our customers, which have thrilled even the skeptics.”
