MIDDLESEX, N.J.—Summit Hill Flavors, a member of the Activ International Group, announced it was issued a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its Grill Flavor process technology, which captures the taste and aroma of grilled meat and poultry.
“This new technology allows us to offer the food industry with the real flavors of grilling meat, poultry and seafood that are traditionally cooked in an outdoor, open-hearth cooking preparation", said Dwight Grenawalt, Vice President and General Manager of Summit Hill Flavors. “The industry challenge has always been to develop a grill flavor manufacturing process to deliver a grilled flavor with the taste and aroma that would be more pleasing to the end consumer."
Summit Hill has combined over twenty years of meat, poultry and seafood flavor technology and the specialized technology of heat processing vegetable oils and animal fats to create the new Chef’s Grill® Flavor product line. According to Dr. Jurgen Scheide, technology inventor and founder of Summit Hill Flavors, “This new technology will not only improve on controlling the manufacturing process, but also offers more flavor formulation flexibility compared to past traditional grill flavor processing methods."
The new products will be marketed under the Company’s Chef’s Grill® brand and can be used in meat, poultry and seafood products, soups, sauces, gravies, snack foods, and spice seasonings and flavor systems.
