Global R&D – a supplier briefing management tool to enable workflow management of seasonings and flavours


Brief & Flavour Management System


Global Leader in Convenient Foods & Beverages Flavour Function


This supplier briefing management system is a tool for a Global R&D team to brief vendors on new or existing seasonings and flavours. But the tool is so much more than a standard procurement system, it is one of a very few innovation systems in the business that serves every single aspect of product development across the foods and beverages business. It is a truly global tool that has embedded itself as a key critical enabler in our client’s R&D centres.

It is a tendering system, it is a collaboration tool, it’s also a cost and time saving essential piece of software not just for our client, but also its suppliers who are the world’s largest flavour houses supplying flavours and seasonings for the world’s best known brands.

Alongside the Flavour Database and Trend Hub – which this tool feeds into through our secure API – has exponentially increased the productivity and cost-effectiveness of the teams through global collaboration. Via the Flavour Database and Trend Hub, Product Developers can search for existing flavours and seasonings and then ‘reformulate’ or ‘shift’ them to another market via a robust briefing process. The system also manages exclusive flavour supplier agreements, ensuring the correct suppliers are briefed, maintaining governance and compliance for the organisation.

Features include, standardised briefing templates, custom workflows, multi-user interaction, flexible sector management and regulatory standards and compliance management.

Our client’s products are enjoyed by consumers more than one billion times a day in more than 200 countries and territories around the world with a product portfolio which includes a wide range of foods and beverages, including many iconic brands that generate more than $1 billion each in estimated annual retail sales.
