HEBRON, KY (FOX19) -

Kentucky Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson joined company and local officials in northern Kentucky Thursday for a ribbon-cutting for ZoomEssence Inc.

The research and development firm is creating 20 full-time jobs and investing more than $3 million in the Commonwealth. 

Gov. Steve Beshear applauded the success for ZoomEssence, which utilizes its DriZoom technology to deliver liquid-quality flavors and ingredients in a powder form.

"ZoomEssence is an example of a high-tech company developing and manufacturing innovative products here in the Commonwealth, and we are very proud of that," said Gov. Beshear. "The workforce, logistical advantages and business climate in Kentucky all play vital roles, but quality products and top-notch people make companies such as ZoomEssence stand out."

"We are thankful to have a partnership with a start-up company that chose to plant roots right here in the Commonwealth," said Lt. Gov. Abramson. "Today's ribbon-cutting represents a lot of dedication from numerous individuals. That hard work is paying off, and we're already seeing some of the results with 20 new jobs and a multi-million dollar investment." 

ZoomEssence has developed the DriZoom™ process technology for converting liquids to powders at ambient temperature. DriZoom™ is a cost effective process that replaces standard high-temperature spray drying by delivering products with improved efficacy, longer shelf life and improved solubility.

ZoomEssence creates and manufactures powdered flavors and food ingredients, with more than 300 types in various snacks, soups, coffee, tea, and other products. The company also manufactures instant coffee, instant tea, Omega-3 powders, vitamins, and other dry products serving a wide variety of customers. Eleven of the 20 new, full-time jobs at ZoomEssence are considered high-tech and technical support jobs, with an average annual salary of approximately $67,000, excluding benefits.
