A McCormick-flavored lifeOur Flavor Solutions
We know our cereal flavor sources, and we combine this knowledge with insight into what consumers prefer to create the best possible taste experience. To get to that “best” taste we also make sure to enhance foundational flavors such as vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon. By closely mimicking how our customers evaluate flavor, we shorten the time it takes to develop the target profile. No matter what the grain type or how a product is formulated, we create signature, masking and background flavors that deliver the breakfast smiles, and sales.
Crackers and Snacks
How do we hit the snack flavor bull’s-eye over and over again? We combine consumer and culinary insights with our Flavor Forecast® to predict flavors and drive innovation. We bring a deep understanding of material science, adhesion and topical technology to every stage of the snack flavor process—from concept and consumer input through plant commercialization and scale-up. Plus our knack for replicating simple and complex culinary profiles and ingredients produces authentic flavor that pops out of the box.
We use inspiration from the total market segment to zero in on the perfect flavor to meet a specific consumer need state. Our capabilities go deep into sweet, sweet-brown and spice flavor options, and our insights go equally deep into flavor systems and seasonings for grain products. Through the unique way we develop and test flavor in various bar matrices, we deliver flavor that allows our customers to produce food bar products that meet high expectations for health, wellness and clean labels.
