Flavoring agents are substances added to food products to enhance flavor and taste. Governed by regulatory bodies like the Codex Alimentarius Commission, FDA, and FSSAI, they fall under the category of food additives. With three types—natural flavors, natural flavoring substances, and artificial flavoring substances—these agents modify and improve the taste of processed foods, ensuring safety for consumption. They play a vital role in both commercial production and culinary applications, offering options derived from natural sources, chemically identical compositions, and synthetically formulated alternatives.

Flavoring agents, widely embraced globally, play a crucial role in enhancing the taste and desirability of various food products. Their applications span processed foods, beverages, bakery items, confectionery, and pharmaceutical formulations. Tailored to the five fundamental tastes sour, bitter, sweet, salty, and umami—these agents are driven by factors such as the need for novel food additives, consumer demand for flavor diversity, technological advancements in the food industry, investment in research and development, and the incorporation of flavors in various products like medicines and cigarettes. The market is propelled by the continuous evolution of flavors, innovative product development, and the growing reliance on processed and ready-to-eat food items.

The flavoring agent market has experienced a downturn in sales and revenue as a result of the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The global supply chain was severely affected during the lockdown, with regulatory bodies imposing export and import bans. This led to a decline in the procurement of commercial flavoring agents due to transportation restrictions and production difficulties.

The initial phase of the lockdown resulted in the closure of manufacturing units and a shortage of manpower, negatively impacting production. To mitigate the spread of the virus and avoid mass gatherings, distribution channels such as supermarkets and retail stores were temporarily shut down. This, in turn, contributed to a decrease in sales and had a direct impact on the revenue of the flavoring agent market.
