John R Wright
I started life as a chemist but soon realized that creating flavors was much more fun. Over the years I have worked for Duckworth (now Kerry), PFW (now Givaudan), BBA and IFF. After I escaped corporate life, I started as a consultant in 2008. My work experience covers most categories of flavor creation and most consumer product categories. I ran the Flavor Division of BBA in the U.K. until 1994, BBA Global R&D from 1995 to 2000 and IFF Global Flavor Creation and Applications from 2000 to 2007.
I lived in the U.K. and Canada before finally settling in New Jersey for the past twenty five years. I have also spent significant interludes working in Chennai, Singapore, Melbourne and Koeln. As a consultant I have worked with many diverse companies, including Synthite in Kerala, Mondelez in East Hanover, Wacker in Munich and Quintis in Perth.
Apart from making flavors, my hobbies include wine, writing, cooking, astronomy, swimming, music, skiing and photography. My favorite spots in this entirely fascinating world are Roquebrune-sur-Argens, Far Sawrey, Marlborough, Breckenridge, Kerala and, last but not least, Grace Bay in the Turks and Caicos islands. I am ridiculously proud of my three children – John, William and Emma. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a Member of the Society of Flavor Chemists, Inc., a Fellow of the British Society of Flavourists and a member of the MIT Innovation Lab..
