Our Story

It’s simple. Our founders, Bob Corbett and Dr. Chuck Beetz looked at the universe of flavor and saw a black hole. Time was standing still. The industry was doing the same routine for over a hundred years. Something as simple as spray drying flavors hasn’t changed since forever, and they were of marginal quality at best.

So, they asked the question—Why? Can we do it without heat? How much better would the product be? Can we do it with less water and less energy? It’s the age-old story of two founders building something in the garage (or, in this case, a barn). They invented the process and the parts and put it all together from scratch. And they are still asking the tough questions to make even better flavors.

At ZoomEssence, we are always asking why. And we’ll go to the barn again for answers if we have to.

Technology Platform

Starting from scratch, our focus was on the application of physics principles as our development platform. Zooming Flavors result from a ground-up approach to process development and the willingness to challenge traditional concepts by asking Why?

The Journey Today

The technology has significantly reduced the heat required to encapsulate flavor compounds and ingredients. We have developed the most efficient delivery system in the industry, providing superior taste and aroma at significant reductions in cost and usage rates. The Zooming process has moved well beyond just powder applications. We have eliminated most if not all use of diluents. With our higher concentrations of flavor actives, Zooming Flavors outperform most liquid and powder products providing a sustainable platform for the future. Alongside our R&D efforts, we are a full-service flavor company with custom development capabilities operating in a 45,000 sq. ft. facility in Northern Kentucky (CVG).

ZoomEssence is a proud supporter of the Be Concerned Food Pantry. Their mission is to assist low-income families in Northern Kentucky to obtain the basic necessities of life. We are committed to making a positive impact in the communities we live and work in.
