Marcella Di Mauro, Trainee Flavourist, at Award-winning flavour company Omega Ingredients, recently attended the three- week Flavourist Training Course developed by The British Society of Flavourists and University of Reading. This unique course is supported by the International Federation of Essential Oil and Aroma Trades (IFEAT). The programme included lectures, practical sessions, and seminars from highly experienced flavourists and University specialists.
Marcella excelled during course achieving top scores on all her flavour presentations, particularly a savoury flavour that really impressed the tutors of the course. Omega Ingredients are delighted that Marcella has been selected to win the IFEAT Award for this year, which is a brilliant success. The celebration will really be marked next year as Marcella has been invited to the IFEAT International Conference in Vancouver to receive her award in person which will be a really special occasion.
Encouraging employee’s potential is at the very heart of what Omega Ingredients do. Company CEO, Steve Pearce, is passionate about staff training so there was no question about putting Marcella forward for this opportunity for her development. Omega Ingredients have a Silver accreditation in ‘Investors in People’, an award the company are extremely proud of and they are currently working on achieving Platinum. Developing talent allows for constant innovation and progress which is why it is encouraged so much at Omega. Marcella will be making even more brilliant flavour creations in the lab now due to the skills she has gained on the Flavourist Training Course!
