Natural flavors company, Edlong Corporation, and Radient Technologies, manufacturer of cannabinoid-based ingredients, are partnering to develop a range of CBD flavors and ingredients for the global food and beverage market.

The two global companies have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to form a strategic Joint Venture (JV) partnership to jointly create and market CBD flavor systems and product solutions for food, beverage (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and pet food industries.

Edlong specializes in dairy flavors, but has expanded its capabilities to address rapidly growing markets such as dairy-free, plant-based, organic, non-GMO, and allergen-free categories.

“Radient is the perfect partner to align with as we explore new opportunities in this dynamic category that is clearly poised for growth,” ​said Laurette Rondenet, president & CEO of Edlong.

Headquartered in Edmonton, Canada, Radient uses a proprietary extraction and downstream processing platform based on a continuous-flow process which allows for much higher throughputs than other extraction technologies, claims the company.

“Due to its rapid speed extraction method and the elimination of additional processing steps such as winterization, Radient is able to achieve higher levels of quality and consistency than other methods of extraction can provide, while retaining more of the natural active compounds (up to 99%) from plant biomass,”​ the company stated.

As a result of its specialized extraction process, Radient is able to produce ingredients that ensure exact and standardized strength and potency, as well as ingredients that improve the taste and shelf life of cannabinoid beverages and edibles, and full spectrum cannabinoid formulations, said the company.  

“Radient’s team of in-house scientists have been developing unique formulations that we believe will tie in perfectly with Edlong’s innovative approach to flavor and ingredient manufacturing for foods and beverages. We look forward to working with Edlong and we are excited to see what kind of advancements we can make in the way of safe and appealing CBD-infused foods and beverages,”​ said Denis Taschuk, President & CEO of Radient.
