Bell Flavors & Fragrances Introduces Spark Trend Program
(Northbrook, IL, January 21, 2015) —Bell Flavors & Fragrances has launched a new trend program called “Spark” to introduce their 2015 flavor and fragrance trend inspirations. Bell’s trend program has evolved over the years to become a dynamic program that analyzes different data points and generates trend insight for flavor and fragrance predictions and concepts.
“We wanted to find a name for our trend program that communicated a clear benefit for our customers and found ‘Spark’ to be fitting as it ignites limitless creativity,” said Kelli Heinz, Bell’s Director of Marketing & Industry Affairs. “That said, Bell would like to officially introduce Spark – Short, fiery, to the point and, we think, a perfect description for Bell’s trend program. Like a spark, which ignites or fizzles out, consumer trends come and go. But you are left inspired all the same.”
Bell’s Spark program will be a resource for analyzing consumer trends to influence flavor and fragrance inspirations. Using a unique process, Bell has uncovered new “Sparks” for 2015 that will provide insight for flavors and fragrances to translate into winning concepts.
