There are as many flavors as there are ways to enjoy them. We are continually exploring and developing new flavors to meet the evolving taste preferences of consumers around the world.

Soft Drinks

Once the leader of the Beverage Category, soft drinks are going through a significant transformation. Traditional sodas will continue to have a place with a segment of consumers, while others are in search of new and specialty craft soda experiences.

Still & Sparkling Water

As consumers’ consumption of soda has decreased, water — in still and sparkling form — has become the most consumed beverage category. We’ll work with you to explore mainstream and novel flavor profiles, and find your next flavored water bestseller.


In both food service and retail, coffee has been the go-to morning drink in the United States. Coffee is now an all-day option to boost energy and alertness, and brings people together in social settings. Whether the coffee is shelf-stable or refrigerated, flavors can be used to enhance or complement the coffee taste and aromatic qualities. Caramel, mocha, vanilla and more. If the consumer wants it, we can deliver.

Sports Nutrition

Sports Nutrition is a beverage category experiencing tremendous growth as offerings are designed to appeal to everyone from a star athlete to an everyday person wanting a healthy lifestyle. The sports nutrition drink category inspires new flavors and delivery formats. Dry powder blends, pressed powder tablets or liquids can be designed to deliver pleasing flavor while masking the bitterness or astringency of healthy additives.

Craft Beer & Cider

For canned or bottled beer and hard cider, liquid flavor can create a unique taste experience. Flavor profiles can be as diverse as the base products themselves — from sweet brown to honey to citrus. If you can imagine it, we can help you create it.


Iced tea in ready-to-drink cans or bottles is a great foundation for flavor — from citrus to orchard fruit to berry and more. Loose-leaf tea and teabags can be infused with flavor crystals that protect the product on the shelf and dissolve when added to liquid, creating a burst of flavor.

Our Versa platform takes your new and existing flavors to new heights. We work with you to enhance, mask or add signature notes to your products.
