Good things come to those who wait and we can't wait to share with you our latest edition of Spark

In 2015, Bell Flavors & Fragrances launched a trend program called “Spark” which highlighted flavor and fragrance trend inspirations. Bell’s trend program has evolved over the years to become a dynamic program that analyzes different data points and generates trend insight for flavor and fragrance predictions and concepts.

Using a unique process, Bell has uncovered new “Sparks” for the year that will provide insight for flavors and fragrances to translate into winning concepts in addition to a Look Back section to access if the trends from last year live up to their hype.

The Spark process combines the following research techniques to materialize flavor and fragrance inspirations:Bell_Spark_logo_FINAL
