MycoTechnology Inc., an innovative food and ingredient technology company announces a global strategic partnership and distributor agreement with the highly progressive natural flavoring company, Blue Pacific Flavors.
MycoTechnology has developed a unique natural food processing platform that uses proprietary cultured mushrooms for improving flavor profiles of foods. Blue Pacific Flavors is well known for its line of authentic fruit flavors under its Farm Stand Whole Fruit Flavors™ portfolio.
Blue Pacific Flavors will distribute MycoTechnology's entire product portfolio. Their global manufacturing, international sales force, large R&D and food application teams will support the development of new products using MycoTechnology's patent-pending food processing platform.
"Our companies share a vision for the future of food. Given the growth of clean-label food ingredients, we believe MycoTechnology has created a natural, organic and GMO-free whole food-processing platform that will disrupt the traditional food manufacturing landscape," said Blue Pacific Flavors CEO Donald Wilkes. "Their unique natural technology will play a significant role in reimagining how agriculture and food processing collaborate to meet the new consumers demands for enhanced nutrition and taste. In addition, we see an opportunity to create natural flavor compounds that can offer new sustainable sources of natural flavor materials."
"Donald Wilkes and his team at Blue Pacific Flavors bring tremendous experience and technical expertise on a global scale and we are thrilled to be working with them," said Alan Hahn, CEO and founder of MycoTechnology. "Our strategic partnership will help us to rapidly execute our technology into commercial applications with the support of their teams. We are particularly excited about their beverage expertise, as we just announced at the Natural Products Expo the development of our naturally bitter-free, beta glucan enhanced fermented green tea using our MycoSmooth™ process."
The recent announcement of MycoTechnology's MycoSmooth tea has attracted the attention from major beverage companies worldwide, looking to remove bitterness while increasing the nutritional profile from their teas.
