Synergy Flavors’ Chicago facility has received organic certification, which will allow it to increase provision of organic flavors, and respond to sustained demand for ‘clean label’ products, the company has said.

Organic food and beverage sales continued to outpace overall food sales during 2009, according to a recent report from the Organic Trade Association. US sales of organic food have more than tripled since 2000, from 1.2 percent of total food sales to 3.7 percent last year, to reach $24.8bn, the report said. And the organic sector has continued to grow at a faster rate than the food industry as a whole. US organic food sales were up five percent last year, while general food sales grew by just two percent.

Marketing manager at Synergy Flavors Karen Gallagher said: "New product launches with organic claims continue to increase and are up over 200 percent compared to 2005. Our expert flavorists and regulatory group are prepared to meet the challenges manufacturers are facing. Synergy will continue to add new, unique, and creative flavors to our Certified Organic and Organic Compliant collections."

The company said its new line of organic flavors will allow food and beverage manufacturers to use a number of on-pack organic claims, including ‘100 percent organic’, ‘organic’ (containing at least 95 percent certified organic raw materials) and ‘made with organic’ (containing at least 70 percent certified organic raw materials), as well as the USDA organic seal.

The certified organic flavors include a line of vanillas, including organic Java vanilla from Indonesia and organic bourbon vanilla from Madagascar in different concentrations.

Synergy already makes a range of liquid organic extracts at its New York facility, and the company also provides a range of ‘organic compliant’ flavors in traditional fruit and nutty flavors.

“Many natural flavors can be modified for use in "suitable for organic" products,”​ the company added.
