Bringing You West Coast Flavor
We are a team of innovators who have been through the creative process, generating a concept, iterating a prototype, finding a manufacturer, and building a marketing strategy. We’ve gone through the ups and the downs of building an iconic brand and ultimately selling our product, Muscle Milk. We fell in love with all things flavor and development and, in 2016, put together an experienced team to build our West Coast flavor house.
We’re Taste Makers and Brand Builders
As one of the fastest growing flavor companies on the West coast, we are here to bring a little sweetness to your product. With powder, liquid, plated, and spray dry flavor development under one roof, we are a flavor and R&D boutique equipped to partner with you for both your flavor and product development needs.
We aren’t the type to fulfill your order and move on. We are here to help you launch a successful brand. Our team is agile, driven by out-of-the-box thinking, optimization opportunities, and high quality standards. We understand what it takes to go from concept to commercialization with our unique experience. We’re always thinking of your route to market because we’ve been in your shoes. We go the extra mile to help you through the process.
