Mint News

Our own Catherine Hogan marketing manager for sweet and dairy, was quoted in Beverage Industry Magazine on our recent collection of new Mint Flavors.  We've worked with this line of flavors and are thrilled with its performance in a variety of applications.   The US team created a Moroccan snack mix that used the mint flavors in a traditional blend of flavors for a non-traditional snack.  The verdict?  Outstanding!
