Faces of Food Science
We’d like you to get to know our people a little better, so we’re launching a fun and fascinating new series featuring McCormick Canada’s Product Development Director for Canada Flavour Solutions, Christine Rush. To kick off the series, we’re going to start with a Q&A session so everyone can get to know Christine.

Dairy Flavouring Expertise
Despite declining sales of liquid milk to consumers, our dairy industry is still going strong! In 2016, 8.44M kilolitres of milk and cream were sold off Canadian farms, enough to fill more than 3,300 Olympic swimming pools!
A Bite of East Africa
From halfway around the world comes a spice-driven taste sensation: the warm and exotic flavours of East Africa. Why has this trend peaked at number one on the Top 20 list of menu trends for 2018? And why are the tastes of these ancient cultures being “discovered” only now?
Kicking Off A Summer of International Flavours
With over 200 ethnicities represented in Canada, you can bet there will be plenty of Canadian eyes glued to screens when soccer teams from around the globe compete for the sport’s ultimate prize this summer. Such incredible cultural diversity may be one of the reasons why Canadians love international cuisine. An amazing 73% of consumers say they like to experience other cultures through food (Mintel - Ethnic Foods and Flavours).
Increasingly, we’re seeing the inclusion of natural botanicals in food products, especially in beverages and snacks. We believe this trend is going to grow stronger, and we’re not alone: the use of floral flavourings in food and beverage products grew by 88% in 2017, according to Mintel data. As a whole, the botanical extracts market is projected to grow to nearly $6B USD worldwide by 2022, driven in large part by consumable applications.
