Facility in CT, USABedoukian Research was founded in 1972 by Dr. Paul Bedoukian. Prior to establishing his own business, Dr. Bedoukian had worked in the Flavor and Fragrance Industry for 25 years as Technical Director, Perfumer, and Consultant. He has written 50 Annual Reviews of the Industry for Perfumer and Flavorist magazine (1945-1994). His F&F book, Perfumery and Flavoring Synthetics, first published in 1951 (with the third edition published in 1985), became a standard reference around the world.

Paul Bedoukian founded the company to fill a niche as a supplier of innovative, high-quality specialty aroma and flavor ingredients. Today, Bedoukian Research offers more than 450 Aroma Chemicals, while also providing custom manufacturing services to the flavor & fragrance, pharmaceutical, and specialty chemical industries.

Paul Bedoukian’s son, Dr. Robert Bedoukian, joined the company in 1975. Under his leadership, Bedoukian Research has enhanced its reputation in the Flavor and Fragrance Industry for superior quality products, excellent customer service, and availability of technical expertise.

Dr. Robert Bedoukian has been serving on the board of directors of the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) since 1989, and the Fragrance Creators Association (FCA, formerly FMA and IFRANA) since 1995. He is a past chairman of the board of directors at RIFM. Additionally, he chairs the Nuvance Health Network Council on Innovation and Research, and serves on the Board of Directors of Ability Beyond and Regional Hospice. Dr. Bedoukian is a recipient of the Purdue University College of Science Distinguished Alumni award for 2013. He also received the Eric Bruell Distinguished Service Award in 2015. This award was created by the FMA board of directors in 1991 to honor individuals in the fragrance industry who demonstrate a willingness to go well “above and beyond the call of duty.”

Dr. Robert Bedoukian’s sons, Dr. Matt Bedoukian and David Bedoukian have taken an active role in the business ensuring a smooth transition of management for years to come. 

As of 2014, Bedoukian Research proudly boasts fully implemented GMP and HACCP programs. While we have had many of the pre-requisite programs in place for years, a formal risk assessment has now been performed and documented. This ensures all risks have been eliminated or reduced to an acceptable level by the pre-requisite programs or process controls like distillation/filtration. The new program will help us continue to provide safe, high quality flavor additives. We are also working towards updating our programs to meet all applicable FSMA requirements.
