Crest Flavor Company began in 1987 when the late Ronald “Gene” Thomas opened a flavor production facility in Kansas City, Missouri. The company moved to this new facility in 1992. In 2009 Crest was acquired by Premium Ingredients International, a leading global distributor of ingredients and flavors for the food & beverage, nutritional, pharmaceutical, livestock & pet food, flavor and fragrance and cosmetic manufacturers.   In 2010 all Crest production was relocated to a new manufacturing facility in Illinois.  To settle the estate of the late Gene and Shirley Thomas, we have been selected to sell this facility to the highest bidder regardless of price at absolute auction.
