Welcome to Blue California Flavors and Fragrances! Vertically integrated from discovery to production, we are the only flavor and fragrance business that is 100% focused on natural, sustainable, non-GMO, plant-based ingredient solutions.

A 21st century approach to natural ingredients

Nature is full of wonderful materials found in limited quantities, at times challenging to scale for commercial use due to farming limitations, or the agricultural supply is increasingly threatened by weather or civil unrest. We offer transparency, versatility, and consistency in supply so that our customers can innovate with confidence. Full control of our supply chain enables us to make products with very modest carbon and water footprints when compared to those from traditional manufacturing methods.

Our unique portfolio of captive materials make the difference in our products.

Molecular precision

Our fermentation and bioconversion processes enable us to produce optically active molecules that are precisely what nature makes. There can be massive differences between compounds produced via plant enzymes and compounds with the same name produced by traditional chemistry. We produce the molecules as they are found in plants, making our products taste and smell more true to nature.
