Industry Spotlight: Local manufacturer Monin wins marketing award



Congratulations to Monin, a Clearwater based gourmet flavoring company, for recently receiving a Marketing of the Year Award for its research process directing the marketing of its flavorings for coffee, tea, lemonade and cocktails.
Monin was founded in 1912 in Bourges, France by small town manufacturer Georges Monin. Today, Monin is still family owned by a third generation Monin. The company strives to create flavors that excite the senses, and that can easily be used by people around the world in their everyday life. Monin has a global presence and can be found in 144 countries. The company came to the United States in the early 1990s.

The Clearwater facility has three working production lines that output every flavor in the Monin product line. Monin has become well known as a manufacturer that uses only the highest quality ingredients. For over 100 years, their passion to create the best products available has remained constant.



Fun Fact about Monin: Monin has created a syrup recycling initiative that hopes to help bees affected by Colony Collapse Disorder, which is greatly reducing bee populations worldwide. Monin’s syrup recycling initiative has been sending waste syrup to feed bees since 2008, and has fed over 374 billion bees!

Monin has been a strategic industry partner supporting and partnering with FLATE for Manufacturing Day in offering industry tours for students in Pinellas County.
