Flavor Development to Get Your Food & Beverage Ideas to Shelf
Overcome flavor challenges by expanding your in-house NPD capabilities
The road to your product launch is often challenging and rewarding, but it doesn’t have to be lonely. Reliable and knowledgeable partners make the innovation journey run smoothly. Our flavor chemists and food scientists bring skill, passion, and intuition to flavor development and formulation support.
We partner with you to create liquid flavor solutions that work for your product application, labeling requirements, and production goals. Consumer trends, flavor insights, continuing education, and curiosity feed our innovation pipeline, so we can help fuel your success.

Our applications team understands the complexity associated with aligning the taste and label goals for your beverage, snack, dairy, or confectionery product. FlavorSum’s applications scientists will help navigate formulation challenges to discover the best taste profile for you.

Did you know that flavor solutions can support new product development beyond delivering the next big taste? The addition or removal of ingredients often imparts unwanted off-notes that require flavor solutions or technology to mask or balance. By partnering with a flavor company with the right expertise, you gain access to flavor masking and modulation tools that ensure unwanted notes don’t come through in your final formulation. FlavorSum can help you:
Mask off-notes from functional ingredients with taste modulation solutions
Enhance sweetness and mouthfeel in sugar-reduced formulations
Complement plant-based foundational formulations
