Givaudan’s SmartTools™ enable us to work more efficiently with our customers than ever before to deliver flavour profiles that break new boundaries and exceed consumers' expectations. These proprietary tools provide a cost-effective way to translate information into actionable data for flavour and taste creation.
SmartTools™ allows us to quickly and accurately get to desired flavours. In the past, customers would have to spend 4-5 sessions over multiple days, tasting a small number of few samples. With our SmartTools™, where everything is fully computerised, automated and flexible, customers can smell over 40 samples in just one session without experiencing fatigue – shortening the overall flavour development process.
This means Givaudan can test more, explore larger sensory space and be faster and more precise at understanding what consumer like, experience and feel.
Within our portfolio of SmartTools™ is the Virtual Aroma Synthesizer™ (VAS) – a revolutionary tool to reach target profiles ... fast. We also have a portable version – the MiniVAS. The advantage of the MiniVAS is that we can go anywhere in the world, to the very source of the flavour, and use our technology on location. We can then evaluate the performance of new ingredients and develop new signature flavours and profiles for customers, in line with consumers' preferences, in the most efficient way possible.
Because our flavourists are able to to capture the flavour at source and make so many important decisions on the spot (in collaboration with our customers), by the time they get the data back to the lab, it is just a matter of fine-tuning things to perfect and finalise the flavours process.
Using our SmartTools™, we can respond swiftly to global, regional and local needs. We can efficiently deliver optimal flavours to suit your requirements and send your product to market more rapidly than ever before – with the highest probability of market success.
