At Synergy we do dairy differently: our heritage, our approach, our expertise are all unique.
Dairy Done Differently
Creating a genuine dairy experience isn’t about adding a single taste. Synergy combines natural flavour creation with the dairy expertise of its parent company, Carbery, to bring the most true-to-nature taste solutions.
Unlike typical dairy flavours that simply add a singular top note, our layered solutions improve mouthfeel, correct off-notes and deliver authentic dairy taste.
Suitable for dairy, dairy-free and plant-based food, and beverage, we help brands deliver the complete expression of dairy that consumers crave.
With a robust set of resources to support you at every stage, we’ll keep you one step ahead of the next technical challenge.Find Out More
