As we enter the final weeks of 2022, we wanted to take a look back at this year’s lineup of issues filled with columns by regular and guest experts weighing in on pressing topics throughout the F&F space. If you haven’t already gotten a chance, explore the December issue filled with the latest developments in the citrus market, flavor formulation, oil extraction, lemon production and more.

This year marked the return of in-person events including the World Perfumery Congress in Miami and Flavorcon in Cincinnati. A special thanks to all of our sponsors, exhibitors and attendees for making them a success!

We also welcomed a new moderator for the “Organoleptic Characteristics of Flavor Materials” column, with Bell Flavors & Fragrance’s principal flavorist, Cyndie Lipka.
