Looking to shake things up in snacking with bold new flavor solutions and cleaner label options?
As a seasoning and ingredients manufacturer, DairiConcepts can help you bring something new to the snack aisle. For over 20 years, we have partnered with customers to help them attain desired dairy-based flavors in snack products, from potato chips, corn chips, popcorn, nuts, dried fruits, pretzels, and crackers.
Snacks are experiencing $1B growth in sales, year over year. In part, this growth can be attributed to consumers being more likely to treat themselves when snacks are perceived as clean label.1 Furthermore, millennials – who are more likely to snack multiple times per day than previous generations – seek clean, organic, less-processed and few-ingredient product choices.2
Our R&D teams help customers apply an array of dairy powders, seasoning blends and natural dairy-type flavors and ingredients to deliver distinctive custom flavors to a variety of favorite snack products while meeting clean label certifications – such as certified kosher, Halal, GMO-free, and organic.
Our natural dairy flavor solutions include Cheddar (mild and aged), Parmesan, Nacho, Blue, Asiago and Butter. We can heighten dairy taste in snacks, mask off-note flavors, or customize unique options to meet your desired profile.
We can top off your snack with our seasoning powders, using a distinct on-trend flavor, whether you desire something sweet (strawberries and cream), spicy (Siracha) or savory (French onion).
