Who We Are
Addressing the Needs of Entrepreneurs and Innovative Companies
Garry Conklin and Joe DiBenedetto began their careers in the flavor industry, working for large flavor houses like IFF, Dragoco, and Firmenich. Over time, they realized that these large flavor companies were unwilling of meeting the needs of small and medium-sized companies, as they lacked the flexibility and personalized mentorship that small companies need to grow their brands. To that end, they founded The Tec Team, now Tasteworks, 15 years ago to help and support smaller companies that were not effectively served by the large flavor houses where they spent their careers.
