About Us Our Expertise

Our customers have come to rely on us for technical expertise in colour matching, new colour development and colour problem solving.

Whether it is key ingredient inclusion, “free from” labeling, addressing a niche consumer demand, satisfying a company marketing mandate, or implementing an R&D initiative -we help customers achieve their goals.



Food manufacturers have increasingly adopted natural colours as public demand for products made from natural ingredients grows. Calico has been supplying natural colours for over a decade and can help guide you through the development process.


Calico’s range of insoluble natural pigment “lakes” broaden the natural colours application range. For low moisture or surface applications these natural pigments fill a gap in the natural colour product range particularly for confectionery and tablet applications.


Custom blending is Calico's core expertise. With over 1,000 custom formulations, our team can help you solve any colour challenge. Calico's custom natural product offering includes liquids, dispersions and dry blends available in various pack sizes and formats.


FD&C dyes and lakes add vibrant, lasting colour to any food product. Calico’s colour technicians are experts in creating custom colours and formulating our products to meet your application-specific requirements. Let us put our 20+ years of FD&C colour experience to work for you.


We partner with global manufacturers to provide customers a suite of world-class products. Let calico address your application-specific needs with best-in-class products.
