Our Vision Beyond the Horizon
Understanding consumer trends, our talented and passionate team is led by insights to create the next generation of natural flavors and innovative whole food ingredients.
Our vision is to create authentic fruit and sweet flavors and whole food ingredients through a Farm to Flavor philosophy.
Strategic partnerships with local farmers and producers drive our product innovation in natural and organic, true fruit and whole plant flavors.
Our global business has led us to travel the world in pursuit of new ingredients – from the jungles in Madagascar to the rainforests in Southeast Asia.
We look for unique exotic fruits and plant-based raw materials that can be used to create the next new natural or organic flavor.
Through our team’s hard work, dedication and commitment, we will continue to create unique and imaginative natural flavor and ingredients.
From California to the World
Strategic agro-partnerships with fruit growers and processors, in California, the Pacific Northwest and Southeast Asia give us unparalleled access to a raw fruit material supply chain so we can create natural flavors with whole fruit extractives as the primary ingredient – always free of traditional chemical solvents.
Commitment to sustainability
Global warming issues impacting agricultural fruit processors and global crops has inspired us to develop environmentally friendly and sustainable business solutions. From sustainable operations to employee incentives, we believe in a sustainable business strategy that not only addresses the sensible consumption of resources, but also focuses on social responsibility alliances with companies like Plant and Food Research, that are developing new technologies to improve fruit and crop yields to protect global supply in the future. We are a proud endorser and member of WasteWise, a partnership program by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps businesses deal with their materials and waste in an environmentally friendly way.
