Taste Industry Challenges

F&B industries need productivity and speed

F&B manufacturers face challenges driven by consumer behavior changes, health and sustainability concerns, and raw material scarcity. To respond and thrive, they need agility and productivity in order to focus resources on consumers and innovation. In this context, relying on relationships and artistry to choose flavors is no longer enough: agility, low cost base and an understanding of local dynamics will be the key factor for successful flavor houses and will drive procurement choice.

Flavor businesses need taste data

A medium-sized flavor house owns thousands of flavor formulations. Still, it is often easier to create new flavors than leverage on existing ones, as flavors are not specified according to taste. Until today, there is no independent company that provides an objective measurement of the taste of flavors and no analytical instrument can replace the human palate. As a consequence, flavors remain black boxes. iSense opens the black boxes: we decode flavors to increase speed and productivity at the interface between flavor houses and food and beverage manufacturers.
