ALL VANILLAS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL. For three generations, Lochhead Manufacturing Company has produced the finest quality Natural and Artificial Vanillas available.


Natural and Artificial Vanillas are just what the name implies—a blend of our wonderful natural vanilla fortified with artificial flavors. This produces a powerful yet pleasant vanilla flavor and when combined with our premium vanillas you the customer enjoy an immediate flavor “hit” in your finished product. Natural and Artificial vanillas should be a complex flavor depending on the amount of natural vanilla the flavor contains. Producing premium Natural and Artificial Vanillas is much like building a house. The quality of a house will only be as good as its foundation. It is exactly the same for making premium Natural and Artificial Vanillas. The quality and complexity of a Natural and Artificial Vanilla will only be as good as the pure vanilla that makes up it’s “foundation” or base. And that is where Lochhead Manufacturing is set apart from the rest. You cannot produce high quality vanillas with inferior quality beans!


At Lochhead Manufacturing Company we source only premium quality sun cured vanilla beans for our vanillas. These beans take longer to grow and cost more than twice as much as low quality beans, but they produce the most wonderful vanilla imaginable. These beautiful beans are then carefully inspected and categorized using our proprietary indexing system based on specific bean characteristics. Once they are grouped, experienced personnel blend the beans according to our formulation specifications to maximize the flavor, strength, and aromatic notes. The final step is our proprietary Cold Extraction Process. We do not use damaging heat or pressure to produce our vanillas ensuring the rich deep flavor and delicate bouquet of the vanilla beans are passed on unchanged into our flavors. The end result is super premium Natural and Artificial Vanillas unmatched in our industry.


At Lochhead Manufacturing Company we believe it’s important to give you the choice when it comes to vanillas. We produce a full line of Natural and Artificial Vanillas from double strength (2X) to super concentrated twenty fold (20X) vanillas. These include Madagascar Bourbon Natural and Artificial Vanillas, Mexican Natural and Artificial Vanillas, Tahitian Style Natural and Artificial Vanillas, and Indonesian Natural and Artificial Vanillas as well as blends of the above vanillas and others. We also source beans from newer growing regions as they meet our quality and flavor standards for new Natural and Artificial Vanillas blends.


Just like our vanillas, your products will only be as good as the ingredients you use. Sacrificing quality means sacrificing flavor and losing customers—not a good business plan. Fortunately when it comes to premium Natural and Artificial Vanillas the overall cost for high quality vanillas is small compared to other ingredients, but your customers will taste the difference! We welcome the opportunity to discuss your vanilla needs and applications. We can then make recommendations from our current blends or formulate a proprietary blend to meet your specific need.
