Top 10 Largest Food Flavor Companies
The top 4 flavor producers control 50% market share. Note that the companies producing flavors for the food and beverage industry are also the companies producing fragrances for the beauty and pharmaceutical industry. There is currently a growing awareness and contention among health and wellness advocates due to the lack of labeling requirements for flavors in food products. For example, a single flavor may contain over 100 ingredients without having to disclose any of them beyond the standard labeling as a ‘natural flavor.’ This has led to the emergence of brands like Volley, that are focusing their messaging around ingredient transparency and the lack of any flavor additives in their recipes. Volley uses 100% agave tequila, sparkling water and organic juice in their premium RTD canned cocktails. The top 10 largest food flavor companies are:
