Chewing Gum Consultant

Professional Chewing gum industry meeting point

Who? 20/01/2012

My name is Joan Mestres. I live in Barcelona and I studied Chemistry, Biochemistry and an MBA. I started in the chewing gum industry in 1996. Since then, I’ve had different positions in different companies (both in Technical and in Sales responsibilities). I worked in more than 40 chewing gum factories and R&D centers, assisting customers in their chewing gum production (formulation, troubleshooting, new product development, etc). I’ve been giving lectures regularly in international institutions such as ZDS (Germany) and Leatherhead Food RA (UK) and also presenting different subjects around chewing gum technology, market trends or new products in Seminars in Singapore, Mexico and Switzerland. I am co-author of the only book published about chewing gum technology and have articles published in several specialized professional magazines.


Currently I offer the following services:

– New Product Development. Expansion of product range.

– Re-formulation or improvement of existing products.

– Advice on processing technology.

– Training and Seminars in-company.

– Market intelligence.

– Contacts with different suppliers related to chewing gum industry (flavours, gum base, sweeteners, colours, packaging material, machinery & engineering, …)

    Hello Joan,
    So a friend and I have a bubble gum idea but are having trouble finding someone to put a formulation together for us or even have it produced. We are in the US and can’t seem to find the avenue. I contacted a middle man company that works with companies in Asia thinking that was the way to go financially anyway. The woman there said we needed a formulation. We have a certain ingredient that needs to be added to the formula along with the flavor. We have a great name for the gum, logo and marketing idea. We do own the domain name for our website but do not have it up and running. We are just two guys with what we think is a great idea. If you could be of any help or even point us in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Robert Travisono
