Dairy Can Be Your Success Story

Decades ago, long before plant-based food and beverages became the consumer mega-trend it is today, the flavor experts at Edlong were developing dairy-free flavor solutions that helped forward-thinking brands create and launch authentic tasting kosher-pareve products.

That head start has kept Edlong and our customers on the cutting edge of innovation in the plant-based space – and if you ask our customers, no flavor house is better equipped than Edlong to deliver authentic dairy taste for dairy-free solutions that keep your labels clean and simple, with recognizable ingredients for nearly every application need.
