in taste.

Our dedicated technical and sales teams work collaboratively, allowing us to quickly and effectively respond to our customers’ unique requirements. We take pride in being our customers’ silent partner and using our global resources to demonstrate on-trend concepts that will inspire product development.

Our Flavours

Our flavours can be provided in liquid or powder and in synthetic or natural forms. We cover a wide variety of profiles from Australian natives, to classic chocolates, spices and every fruit imaginable. While we understand the importance and invest heavily in flavour technology to enhance our matching ability, we also encourage our flavourists to use their personal flair when developing new flavours. We believe this balance of technology and art is what make Essential’s flavours unique.

Our order processing team is ready to schedule your next order to be manufactured by our state-of -the-art production equipment. Having reached the pinnacle of quality certification in SQF, we can assure our customers that we care for the quality and consistency of their products and have a philosophy of always being audit ready.

We are very proud of our purpose-built facility in Carrum Downs and we would love to take you on a tour very soon.
