An ecosystem to guide flavor choice

iSense is a Swiss start-up created mid 2018 by a group of passionate food, sensory and flavor scientists, IT engineers and marketers.

Today the F&B industry demands transparency, rapid NPD time to market and high productivity.

Despite this, flavors are still not defined for their most important attribute - their taste. As a result, flavor choices are based on artistry, causing increased complexity, higher costs and slower NPD.

iSense changes this. We specify the taste of flavors, we guide flavor choice with data and analytics and we provide a better buying and selling experience with the flavor industry's first global digital trading hub.
