Worldwide, appealing taste is the primary characteristic consumers look for in foods and beverages. But there’s no universal agreement on what defines good taste—for some it’s a certain flavour, for others it’s a sensation of novelty or nostalgia. Because taste is an essential, but elusive, target, we offer thousands of flavours, extracts, broths, oils and other taste products to help you deliver a memorable and enjoyable taste to consumers with different preferences.
Our taste-specific solutions work alone or in tandem with other offerings, including those designed to enhance the nutrition or texture of a final application.
Our rich food heritage and taste expertise allow us to meet consumer demand for clean, natural and delicious products. Our chefs and scientists search the world for new flavours and study how natural ingredients and timeless cooking processes create good taste. This curiosity and expertise has helped us develop an extensive library of taste products from food, and declared as food, which deliver the great taste consumers expect while also allowing for clean labels. Our taste products include extracts, stocks, infused oils and true-to-fruit powders.
Sustainably sourced ingredients go into Simply Nature™, our product line of extracts and distillates.
Our flavour library includes a spectrum of taste solutions, from ripened strawberry for a beverage to seared beef for a prepared meal.
Our Authentic Savoury™ line captures the taste of home cooking and grilling in natural stocks, reductions, demi-glazes and more.
Products in our TasteSense™ range allow you to reduce sugar, salt and fat while retaining taste, mouthfeel and texture.
The beverage market is evolving at a fast pace, which means beverage companies are in a state of constant reinvention. Our cross-functional beverage team can help, pulling from our extensive range of flavours and our history of creating drinks consumers love. Our offerings go beyond flavour, delivering clean labelling with our range of SimplyNature™ botanical extracts and reducing sugar through our TasteSense™ sweet solutions, which are designed to retain taste and mouthfeel. Our nutrition beverage solutions also include the high-protein plant-based Prodiem™ Refresh and immune strengthening products such as Wellmune™and Ganeden™.
Formulating the future of the baked good industry

We will help you to deliver great tasting products enhanced with our taste and nutrition technologies, including products that address common challenges such as the need to deliver indulgence, improve nutrition, or achieve greater processing efficiency. In addition to flavours and sweet and cereal solutions, we have a full range of enzymes, texture systems, fermented ingredients and glazes, among others.
Delivering authentic, familiar dairy taste
Dairy-based products bring pleasure and goodness to consumers, thanks to the creaminess and nutritional benefits of milk. We support the creation of naturally delicious, fruity and indulgent dairy products through the use of our SimplyNature™ range of taste solutions. To bring extra fun and excitement to beverages, ice creams, yogurts and more, consider our sweet and cereal systems such as syrups and inclusions. We can also optimise the nutrition of dairy products and suggest dairy alternatives for use in dairy-free applications.

We also offer taste-forward marinades, rubs, glazes, coatings, seasonings and spices. These technologies can be layered with freshness technologies to reduce food waste and maintain food safety.
Delivering authentic taste from real ingredients
We match the consumer demand for an authentic taste experience with optimised nutrition. The range of flavours, stocks, infused oils and smoke and dairy solutions in our AuthenticSavoury™ line bring the taste, aroma, feel and nutrition of home cooking to your consumers. Our functional, safe and sustainable solutions also optimise nutrition, such as through the reduction of sugar, calories or fat.
Creating the taste and snacks of the future
Snacking is synonymous with fun, enjoyment and sharing. Consumers actively seek new snack experiences including ones with layered tastes and multi-sensorial textures. Our expertise across applications and categories allows us to create new snack format combinations that draw from dairy, seasonings, fillings, better-for-you solutions and coatings to create the ultimate snack sensation. For example, our cheese powders and our infused oils can help you to stand out from the crowd while keeping your label clean.
Surprise the world with tasty and innovative confectionaries
Consumers want customisation, new sensations, innovative taste and guilt-free options from their sweets. Our flavours and extracts excite the taste buds while products such as our RainbowSensations collection bring colour and texture.
