Virginia Dare’s Vanilla extracts and flavors have been the standard against which the rest of the industry is measured for five generations. We attribute this recognition to our many corporate strengths, but specifically to four strategic areas of Vanilla focus and expertise:

  • Our knowledge of the Vanilla market has helped our customers navigate cyclones, political upheaval, embargoes, vine diseases and bean shortages. Our recommendations have saved customers millions of dollars and have ensured the uninterrupted availability of their Vanilla requirements, without exception, regardless of external market conditions.
  • We use a “no shortcuts” extraction process that retains the most delicate aromatics and delivers a complex, full bodied flavor profile. We continually develop new products and processes to build on our extensive product range. Our product portfolio includes Vanilla flavors, extracts, concentrates and oleoresins from every commercially viable origin.
  • Our technical expertise enables us to maintain a consistent flavor strength and profile of our products, despite the variability of Vanilla beans, which can result from differences in weather conditions, cultivation methods and curing processes. This consistency requires a combination of expertise in procurement, analytical methods, sensory evaluation and production techniques.
  • We have local operations at source in Madagascar to ensure our continued ability to provide our customers with the availability, quality and consistency of vanilla extracts and flavors during periods of market instability and supply shortages. This commitment also enables us to provide traceability and promote sustainable agriculture by adding value at the farm level.
This strategic focus and expertise is the reason why product developers in the food and beverage industry who think of Vanilla, think of Virginia Dare.
