In 2014 we created a strategic partnership with Fifth Sense, a charity that helps people affected by smell and taste disorders worldwide – a topic that’s received particular attention due to Covid-19.
At FlavorActiV we are acutely aware of the challenges faced by individuals who have lost the sense of smell or taste. Our partnership with Fifth Sense was born!
FlavorActiV delivered the ‘Taste, Train, Enjoy’ workshop at the 2015 Fifth Sense conference (shown left).
THE SENSE OF SMELL IS A COMPLEX TOOL THAT EVOKES MEMORIES AND TRIGGERS EMOTIONAL RESPONSES.
THE CHARITY FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY SMELL AND TASTE DISORDERS
We provide regular support with surveys, research and events. Our technical and sensory capabilities have helped develop a take-home Taste Kit, allowing members to test their ability to identify the 4 basic tastes.
Fifth Sense’s strategy is to address the lack of understanding within society of the role that the senses of smell and taste play in our lives, a major reason for the lack of appreciation of the impact that disorders of these senses can have on those affected.
