BERGAMOT

A citrus like no other. It contains higher levels of the compounds linalool and linalyl acetate which creates the distinct floral, citrusy and light aroma and taste. Best known for its use in teas, bergamot pairs extremely well with lemon flavours.

Grown almost exclusively in Calabria in southern Italy, oils from bergamot provide distinct and unique flavour profiles.

MANDARIN

Each variety of mandarin imparts its own unique character. Our experts work with customers to identify exactly which notes will bring their product to life.  Whether you’re looking to add seasonality or create an all-round fresh and juicy characteristic, we will help you find what you’re looking for.

True mandarins are grown in Italy and the root stock is now planted in many regions of the world. Each is processed differently to produce a diverse range of profiles.

  • Yellow mandarin
  • Red mandarin

TANGERINE

These punchy, true to the fruit, flavour ingredients create exciting results. Each variety brings something special and our range of products offers formulators the flexibility needed to create a standout solution. Tangerine and mandarin are from the same botanical family.

Tangerine is the second most widely grown citrus fruit after orange.

Tangerine, Clemetine and Murcot are all in the same botanical family (Citrus Reticulata).
