How a product tastes is one of the biggest determinants of consumer preference.

Through our proud partnership with International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF), and TastePoint by IFF, we can offer a large selection of:

  • Liquid Flavours
  • Emulsions
  • Powder Flavours
  • Savoury Flavours

SK Chemtrade have worked with International Flavors & Fragrances – regarded as one of the global leaders in the development of essential and sensorial experiences for the food and beverage industry – for over 30 years in South Africa and Zimbabwe. It is a partnership that we are immensely proud of.

In 2022, SK Chemtrade was awarded the distribution of the Tastepoint product portfolio. Tastepoint combines the strengths from David Michael, Ottens Flavors and Frutarom Flavors under the IFF roof. These trusted names came together to create a united company that’s nimble, adaptable, and resourceful, and one that SK Chemtrade is very proud to represent and distribute for in Southern Africa.


As the world’s most popular flavour, vanilla is a perennial favourite across a wide selection of applications ranging from dairy to culinary and truly everything in between. At Tastepoint, they recognise and value how much vanilla has been, and continues to be, at the core of so much of what they do as a flavour company. This is why one of their working goals is to become unquestionably preeminent in all things vanilla. Call SK Chemtrade today for our vanilla offering from Tastepoint.


At the heart of many umami-related development challenges is delivering the depth of flavour experience that’s expected in authentic savoury products. A core strength at Tastepoint is their exclusive “building block” approach to savoury taste creation. This methodology allows for a product development process that layers core savoury processed flavours, top note nuance flavours and natural salt and umami enhancing flavours, for a completely customisable flavour delivery system.
