Topic:  A Taste of Zombies

A Taste of Zombies…..  the living dead have been invading our theaters and television shows for many years.  Today they even dance, race and appear in mobs in cities and suburbs around the globe.  Consumers can’t get enough of them.  Interest in ghouls, vampires and Zombies have become a global trend.  Join Firmenich to learn how a trend as unnatural as Zombies can be translated to flavors!
