Bell’s Botanical Division Is on the Rise

May 2, 2007

Bell Flavors & Fragrances has recorded tremendous growth in its botanical division during the past few years, according to the company. Since the initial production of botanical extracts in the U.S. more than 15 years ago, Bell’s focus with botanicals has become more concentrated and has expanded to offer many unique blends.

In addition, Rick Banick has been recently promoted to the position of botanical manager. He came to Bell with a degree in chemistry from Northern Illinois University, and has held a number of positions in the fragrance division during the past 10 years. In recent years, Mr. Banick has been able to work exclusively in the botanical division learning the industry and now has plans to further increase the botanical research and advance the department.
