F.D. Copeland highlights range of natural oils
F.D. Copeland, established in 1937 and now one of the world’s leading companies within the essential oils industry, today exports its products to over 60 countries worldwide.
'Essential oils’ are natural flavour or fragrance materials extracted from fruits or plants by either cold processing or steam distillation within their country of origin. F.D.Copeland further processes these oils by cleaning, fractionating, concentrating (folding) and blending to create, unique natural, complex flavour components that are 100% from source.
The company offers an extensive portfolio of quality essential oils, individually sourced by a team of professionals, from the world’s best origins. The comprehensive palette of natural ingredients is primarily made up of Peppermint, Mint, Spearmint, Menthol, Orange, Lemon, Lime , Mandarin, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Eucalyptus, and Aniseed, complemented by a large array of Herb and Spice blends, Vanilla and Vanilla Beans.
In 2011, the company moved its production to new purpose-built manufacturing facilities in South London. Boasting the use of the highest grade (340) stainless steel in its construction, Copeland has a varied number of blending tanks at its disposal, totally dedicated to mint and citrus in sizes anything between 4,000 and 15,000 kilos.
At the bequest of its most valued clients around the world, the new production facilities enable Copeland to optimise the flow of materials from goods inwards, through quality control, manufacturing and blending to despatch, all within a secure environment.
The site, for some time, has held BRC AA category and ISO 9001 and the company's executives play a leading role in 'IFEAT' and 'REACH'.
Copeland believes that its level of commercial acumen and the ability to interpret a brief – while delivering a consistent high-class product at a competitive price – would impress companies both big and small.
The company also has a very knowledgeable applications department which will deliver current trends, new ideas and cost savings. At FiE in Paris last November, Copeland launched a new range of Cocktail blends, Old Fashioned Soft Drink Concepts, Colas, Mints with herbs and spices and mints with a hint; all of which had a very favourable showing.
Copeland is now partnering with leading companies to deliver all of the above in Spray Dried format.
