Tasting Success In the Food and Beverage Industry
Graeme Dossetor has sniffed and nibbled his way to remarkable success over the past 25 years.
No, he’s not a chef and yet chef’s around the country indirectly rely on his nose and palate to create just the right taste for some of your favourite dishes.
And no, unfortunately he’s not a winemaker either.
As Managing Director of AFIS (Australian Food Ingredient Suppliers), one of Australia’s leading flavours and colours companies, his acute ability to judge just the right aroma or essence for his clients is crucial to his business.
AFIS flavours and colours are used in hundreds of food products including drinks and pastries Australians consume every day.
Not surprisingly, Graeme can tell you instantly what are Australian’s favourite flavours.
“In soft drinks it’s the cola flavour, dairy it’s chocolate, juices orange and for lollies it’s raspberry,” he says.
But, as he just as quickly points out, there are many “chocolate”, “cola”, “orange” or “raspberry” versions of those iconic flavours.
And that’s where Graeme and his team’s expertise comes in.
“Our customers, like drink manufacturers and bakeries will contact us and explain they want a slightly sweeter, or drier or richer version of a particular flavour for a particular ingredient they want to use,” he explained.
“Our food technologists will then begin to develop some flavours according to the customers expressed requirements. There are really no “new” flavours. Like other flavour companies we set out to mimic a particular flavour and then give it a slightly new essence the fills our client’s need.”
Graeme and his team work very closely with each client until they find just the right “mix” that brings to life the flavour that works best for the client’s food or drink.
