Custom Sauces - Ideations

Join us for a collaborative ideation session, where we try out great flavors and experiment with trendy ingredients

Collaborate. Customize. Create.

Begin your custom  culinary adventure with a collaborative ideation session to develop the perfect custom flavor solution.  Use this consultation to share your vision for developing a unique, customized flavor solution that will tantalize the taste buds. We’ll strategize which of the basic taste sensations – sweet, sour, salt, bitter, and savory – will need to be incorporated and consider which ingredients can best achieve your goals. Related elements, such as aroma, consistency, fluidity, coloration, and pungency will also be evaluated. This ideation session should be utilized to visualize and virtually taste your custom-made sauce.

Potential food pairings with your custom sauce are an obvious one, as a perfect sauce, marinade, dressing or dip needs to complement the food it’s paired with rather than supplanting it. Are there any desired caloric or fat content limitations, or perhaps other food health-related goals such as heart-healthy or gluten-free? All in all, we want to know every detail of your vision so that we can create a work of culinary artistry that will wow the taste buds and meet all of your custom-made sauce goals.

Based on what we learn during this collaborative ideation session, our highly qualified chefs and product developers will entice your senses with a culinary demonstration of tailor-made samples designed to further nail down your vision. Once we’ve presented your taste buds with just the right custom flavor solution based on your parameters that you absolutely love, we’ll move forward with developing a detailed formulation. And it won’t stop there…but you’ll have to trust us to find out.

Experiment with different flavor notes for your product. Here are some of our favorites:

Custom Smoky Suaces

Smoky & Savory 

Whether a custom formulation BBQ sauce, branded sauces for cooking, or custom sauces for dipping or covering, you want your smoky & savory sauces, dips, dressings, and marinades to be distinctive but not overpowering. Many mass-produced smoky & savory sauces are so pungent that they tend to become the only distinctive flavor in a dish. But we create smoky & savory sauces that perfectly complement targeted foods and dishes without overwhelming their inherent flavors.

Our custom hot sauces can be tailored to deliver a wide variety of heat, from delicate and subtle to fiery and immediate. We can adjust the heat levels as desired and let you show your customers that hot & spicy flavoring is not only about the heat.
