The Symrise team is continually studying the Latino population in the United States for our ongoing Sabor in America initiative. Sabor in America is all about being prepared for the future as the cultural make-up of America continues to change. Therefore, we are consistently studying Latino consumers and the impact that they are having on mainstream America's food, beverage and culture. 

As a part of our research we are dedicated to continually exploring different areas of the United States and different countries of influence from Latin America. Over the last year or so we have been around the U.S. to New York City, Chicago, and Miami as well as Brazil to capture insights first hand. 

Below you will find a recap from all of our recent trips with insights on food, beverage, culture, art and more. Click "more" on each of the articles below to read the full recap!
