Plant-Based solutions for the food, beverage, and nutrition market
Bring your plant-based products to life with authentic flavours and taste modulation solutions.
The story starts with your product. We gain a deep understanding of the taste and texture using the latest analytical and sensory techniques. Using a combination of art, science and insight we look to mask undesirable notes, deliver authentic flavour and boost overall eating experience.
We understand traditional dairy and how to replicate its indulgent properties in plant-based recipes. From authentic butter flavours to masking the undesirable notes in plant-based milk alternatives, tell us your goals and we’ll help you reach them.

Many plant-based products face taste challenges, particularly if they involve reduced salt, sugar, fat, or calorie recipes.
We have developed a range of taste modulation solutions to help you create the best tasting products, regardless of protein source or nutritional content.
Our range includes protein harmonisers, kokumi and umami flavours, sweetness enhancers and unique dairy ingredients which can help build back the indulgence lost when reducing fat content.
