2015: Another Year of Success

2015: Another Year of Success

2015 has been a very special year for ITS (International Taste Solutions). With an expanding range of flavours and innovative new products, the company has also seen a remarkable increase in its customer base. ITS is also proud to have been recognised for its innovation and quality by the WBBA (see below).     

This year, ITS has extended its range of natural flavours for bakings and icings. Its broad range now includes tropical flavourings and floral flavourings, which add up to the existing long list that includes nuts, creams and browns, berry fruit, citrus and tropical fruits and retro sweet shop flavourings, amongst others. ITS’s innovative team has also launched EnhancR™, a new solution to extend freshness in cakes that has received a great response from the public and the media. This adds up to its range of texture improvers, which include solutions for salt and sugar reduction in breads and baked goods.

In May, ITS attracted the attention of specialised media after announcing the company’s expansion into Southern Europe (Spain, Italy and Portugal).

September was a busy month for the team. ITS showcased its products at IBA, in Munich, with an overwhelming response from the public. Our array of products and solutions for taste, texture and shelf life extension were tried and tested by visitors during the exhibition and was well received. The ‘clean label’ system for shelf life extension proved very popular as was our  natural flavoured infused raisins, sultanas and cranberries.

ITS’s range of seasonings for croutons also impressed our visitors.

Later on, in October, ITS’s team a big surprise when ITS was awarded the West Berkshire Business of the Year! The company also won in the category of The Business Executive Advantage Innovation Award, even with some strong contenders who represented a variety of industry sectors. The judges were seeking companies that could demonstrate how a business innovation initiative has created a substantial benefit to the company’s success, and there was ITS!. According to Mike Bagshaw, ITS Managing Director, “this recognition comes after a lot of work, persistence and determination; I truly believe I have the greatest team in the world”.

The team at ITS are ready to keep helping their customers innovate and enhance their baking products offering the best service and take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
