FlavorSum 2021 Annual Review

A Year of Transformation

You’ve experienced continued changes in 2021, and we have, too. But for many companies, including FlavorSum, 2021 was a year of transformation.

Transformation tran-sfr-may-shn – modifying core beliefs and long-term behaviors, sometimes in profound ways, to realize positive outcomes.

As the world slowly opened in 2021, your company likely felt the effects of:

Shifting Consumer Demands

Consumers who wanted more of their familiar favorites and started asking for purposeful foods to support health & wellbeing.

Shaky Supply Chain

A shaky supply chain still struggling to stabilize while battling labor, material, and transportation challenges.

Slow Product Development

Slowing New Product Development in many categories as retailers prioritized top sellers over new launches

And with ‘business as usual’ rapidly shifting, you had to adjust goals, strategies, processes, and expectations. Here’s how the FlavorSum team transformed to ensure we continue to meet your needs for flavor solutions that create connections with consumers.

In 2021, we unified 4 flavor houses

Each with long legacies of providing high-quality, custom flavor solutions and responsive customer service.
