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. Agility, low cost base and understanding of local consumer and taste dynamics will further establish as key success factors, driving procurement choice.

Flavor businesses need taste data

Since flavors are not specified for their taste, it is often easier to create new flavors than leverage on existing ones. 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.
