In addition to offering premium and specialty butter products for more than 60 years, Butterball® Farms is a custom food flavoring company that can create sauces, glazes, fillings, marinades, and other flavor solutions that add a finishing touch to your menu or product.
With endless opportunities for craveable new flavor profiles that showcase your brand’s flair for innovation, we can help you develop new flavor ideas for everything from breakfast dishes to desserts.
Sure, your kitchen team could spend hours developing a new sauce flavor to use in your dining room and packaged products—but when? Working with an American custom food flavoring company like Butterball Farms takes the guesswork off your staff’s plate, allowing them to innovate and provide memorable experiences in other ways.
Even more, for food manufacturers, there are business benefits to using customized flavors. Instead of having to wait for flavored sauces and toppings to be created in-house from scratch, ready-made customized flavors allow you to speed up market development.
To keep your customers coming back time and again and keep your restaurant sustainable as a business, you have to keep innovating with your menu. Food trends may come and go, but custom food flavoring allows you to stand out from competing restaurants and keep a constant pulse on your customers’ preferences—making your restaurant a mainstay through every trend.
No matter which flavor you have in mind, continuously experimenting with custom flavors keeps them coming back for more, allowing you to quickly and reliably scale your ideas across multiple locations.
Regardless of the flavor combinations you use for your sauces, fillings, and toppings, working with us to develop and produce them can save your team hours. In turn, this cuts down on overtime and labor costs—which is essential for helping you retain your most experienced kitchen staff.
Furthermore, unlike using dry seasonings with your sauces, our ready-made custom flavors reduce the risk of human error in the preparation process.
For example, suppose your new line chef is still getting familiar with your recipes and process. Instead of leaving them with a high-pressure situation where they might end up with an over-seasoned batch of aioli or a burned pan of butter sauce that you can’t use, using custom ready-made sauces allows them to simply open up a new tub and have the sauce ready for plating.
In another instance, food manufacturers can also use pre-portioned flavored dollops in the manufacturing process. In an environment where additional steps can add up and prevent more products from getting out the door, these can save time on labor while minimizing the changes in your current manufacturing process.
In turn, this allows your kitchen staff to focus on what matters most: providing an excellent customer experience.
Investing in custom flavor development sends a subtle message to your customers that you care about providing them with an experience they won’t find anywhere else. In turn, you’re making eating an adventure for your customers by giving them recipes with more flavor and depth they can savor.
Since we use high-quality ingredients in every custom recipe we create, you know your custom sauces and fillings will match your standards for your menu items. This allows you to maintain rigorous quality standards while saving preparation time, cleanup, and storage space.
We’ll work with you to take your custom sauce from concept to continuous delivery. Here is an overview of what you can expect during every step of the custom flavor development process with Butterball Farms.

Our goal is to make sure this flavor fits your exact needs, so we want to make sure it’s something we can replicate successfully and consistently whenever you order more.

Beyond the realm of table butter in customized or branded shapes and flavors, we also use our butter-based and non-dairy sauces to develop flavors that will have your customers raving. Here are some examples of the custom sauce, glaze, aioli, and filling flavors we’ve made a reality over the years:
