"We joined the UK Flavour Association last year and have found it to be a hugely valuable source of information for our business, providing us with up-to-the minute changes in all relevant regulations and giving us a voice to positively influence the direction of the regulators. Most importantly for us is the confidence that our interpretations are in line with those of the industry and the European and National  authorities; this also gives our customers the confidence they need to use our products correctly." - Naheeda Portocarero, Kemin Food Technologies, 2012
