Flavor and Taste - the eternal food industry challenge

Taste drives 80% of F&B consumer purchase intent. Despite this, flavors are still not clearly defined for their taste. As a result, F&B companies remain unable to assess or compare flavor offerings in an accurate or cost-efficient manner.

That's where iSense comes in.

iSense has developed an open sensory language that enables the taste of every flavor to be defined in a uniform manner. Our unique SaaS flavor portal then enables this transparent sensory data to be stored by F&B manufacturers and flavor houses alike - empowering mutual digital interaction.

F&B manufacturers can quickly benchmark, compare and source new flavors – accelerating NPD and reducing flavor costs. Flavor houses can optimize and leverage their portfolios to meet and trigger F&B manufacturer demand – accelerating sales.

Welcome to the future of flavor optimization.
