Kalsec is the leading global producer of natural taste and sensory solutions, colors, food protection and hop extracts that help food and beverage companies make their products look better, taste better and last longer…naturally™. We add value to our customers’ brands by providing innovative solutions while respecting the people and planet in which we interact.
For example, how does a salsa company create a consistent salsa with the hot and spicy flavor its customers love? Often, it uses our capsicum extracts to maintain a consistent level of heat, which keeps the mild salsa mild, and Uncle Harry’s favorite spicy salsa always hot.
We help provide natural ingredient solutions to thousands of food and beverage companies. Our ingredients improve the look and taste of products on nearly every shelf at your local grocer.
We offer outstanding career opportunities for those striving to develop their talents in a family-owned, globally focused company. We nurture a culture driven by creativity, research and innovation, while respecting everyone’s desire for stability and a strong work/life balance. We focus on hiring individuals that can thrive in our environment.
...In fact, half of our employees have worked for Kalsec 10 or more years. As a privately held company, we have more than 60 years of experience focusing on the quality of our ingredients from field to fork. We know that our dedication to relationships, processes and the relentless pursuit of innovation will keep Kalsec around for the next 100 years.
Founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1958, Kalsec has deep roots in the local community and we maintain high standards of corporate and environmental stewardship. Our headquarters encompasses more than 100 beautiful acres of the forested family farm originally owned by the company’s founder. Steady global expansion of our business has resulted in worldwide coverage.
