OC Flavors, a manufacturer of liquid and powdered flavors for the beverage, dairy, plant-based, nutraceutical, confection, and bakery industries, announced an acquisition of Novotaste, a Canadian-based provider of natural and organic flavor solutions. With this acquisition, OC Flavors solidifies its position as a top provider of high-quality, customizable flavor solutions and expands its footprint into Canada and the Northeastern US to better serve the food and beverage industry.

Founded in 2007, OC Flavors has grown into the flavor partner of choice for many iconic brands, leading retailers, and emerging disruptors alike within the food and beverage industry, thanks to its commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. The team at OC Flavors has built its reputation on its ability to quickly and efficiently deliver flavor profiles that exceed customers’ expectations and delight ultimate end consumers.

In 2022, OC Flavors entered a growth partnership with Shore Capital Partners, a Chicago-based private equity firm, to build upon OC Flavors' successful heritage and strong foundation. This acquisition of Novotaste supercharges the platform’s development and production capabilities, adds more top tier flavor talent, and provides a bicoastal presence to ensure we are always nearby when our customers need an innovation partner or a taste problem solver.
