Creating Custom Flavors

In the world of taste, mundane flavor can be found in an exorbitant amount of food and beverage products; and that’s because not all flavorings are created equal.

What makes certain entrees or beverages or baked goods (…or that Saturday night ice cream cone you indulged in from the city’s most popular sweet shop) taste better than others?

Yes, without question it’s the quality of the ingredients used. But, equally as important, it’s the flavorings.

Carefully curated flavors – ones that are also made from high quality, all-natural flavor ingredients – can make your application stand out and hit the highest notes among consumers.

Custom Flavorings and Extracts: Wholesale Program

What is the process of working with Bickford to create a custom flavor?

There are two primary needs for custom flavors:

  1. You are using a different company's flavor and would like Bickford to flavor match. In this case, you will need to send us a sample of the flavor to be matched.
  2. You would like Bickford to create a new flavor. In this case, we ask:
    • What will the flavor be used in?
    • Does it need to be oil- or water-based?
    • What kind of flavor profile does it need?
    • What should it taste like?

Once we have all the necessary information, our flavor chemists create the flavor in the lab and send you a sample for feedback.
