Flavour driven success

Flavours drive success. Flavours are recognised as an essential element to success, providing a competitive edge for you. Flavours have evolved. They can be sourced as organic, natural and blended to an almost infinite variety. They enhance the products to increase appeal to end consumers, to encourage return purchases and build the excitement of anticipated treats around events such as Christmas, Easter, festivals and holidays.

What We Do - House of Flavours

Sensory and flavour training

Sensory and flavour training is at the heart of our business.

We take you through the journey of flavouring to develop an understanding of how useful flavours are to your business, providing that competitive edge. Working together, you engage with our products, tastes and flavours.

The skill, expertise and experience of our flavour house combine flavours in unique ways to enhance any product, taking them from the mundane to the sublime. Flavours position products within the market, adapting products to their mass or niche position.

Opening Pandora’s Box

We share a number of our secrets with you, building trust and developing unique products.

We take you from concept to completion. We can provide a full service or a tailor-made service depending on your needs.

Unparalleled market knowledge

Our approach to the market and products is our unique selling proposition. We don’t think of our business first, we think about the products first, you next, and if we get that right then successful business follows.

Known for decades for our new product development (NPD), we cover everything from NPD, through trend support and application issues, to hand-holding.

Quality

Unsurpassed quality

Quality for us means quality across every aspect of the business, from operations to ingredients to service.

Quality, delivered on time

Our purpose-built premises in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, enable us to offer you a stockholding facility, giving huge reductions in lead times.

We can manufacture 10kg to 2,000kg batches in our state-of-the-art facility.

Stock is available off the shelf with stock-holding agreements, and goods can normally be dispatched in under 24 hours.

Quality standards

We meet and maintain the highest, independently verified, standards.

We are BRCGS food safety certified, with annual recertification, and are justifiably proud of our record of incredibly low non-conformances which reflects our attention to detail and focus on quality.

Hygiene and cleanliness are a given; we have inspections and check forms after every batch. Microbiological control includes routine and random testing.

All hygiene and manufacturing controls are diligently and fully controlled. Our products are COSSH certified, we have internal manufacturing standards manuals and processes covering microbiological testing, hygiene, and swabbing to ensure cleanliness, and we have stringent control on allergens.

We meet, record and maintain digital records of all Covid requirements.

Quality of equipment

We have state-of-the-art facilities operating to current legislation. We invest for future growth, ensuring there is additional capability and capacity at a moment’s notice.
