About Us

Inspiring the creation of flavorful food and drinks, Jogue was founded in 1984 in Detroit, Michigan. Our rich history of flavor innovation dates back to 1910 through our acquisition of Northville Laboratories – and is supported today by four additional manufacturing facilities that serve clients throughout North America and around the world.

Specializing in the bakery, beverage, confectionery, dairy and pharmaceutical industries, you can rely on Jogue to provide or customize the flavor or scent that’s right for you. Jogue’s flavor team works hand-in-hand with clients to respond effectively and efficiently to the evolving needs of consumers.
