Target Flavors

In 2014 Target Flavors purchased the property located at 251 Enterprise Drive in Oakland Industrial Park, moving their manufacturing operations to Target Flavor_SCNewport News. Founded in 1981, Target produces and markets flavors to makers of everything from sports drinks to pharmaceutical companies to sauces and gravies. Target’s expertise in custom flavor development offers innovative solutions to the many challenges facing the food and beverage industries. Recently, Target Flavors announced a line of natural fruit juice extenders designed to replace juice concentrates in a variety of applications.

The Newport News facility will facilitate Target Flavors corporate offices and product development with state-of-the-art production equipment. The company has invested $1.5 million in the facility and plans to hire at least 15 people at its Newport News location, and is preparing to ramp up production.
