Getting to Know Isolde Aubuchon December 2018

Isolde Aubuchon“New challenges excite me,” says Isolde Aubuchon, technical director at American Beverage Marketers, where she creates cocktail mix brands like Master of Mixes, Finest Call, Re’al, and Agalima.

“Having the team create the best possible product and execute it to the marketplace in a very efficient manner is a win for the whole team,” she adds. “I enjoy meeting and working with all team members across multidisciplinary functions to ensure they get what they need for us all to succeed at the company. On a different note, working with 99% of my suppliers is such a joy; most of them have become very good friends over the years.”

After moving to the Louisville, Ky., area, Aubuchon began her involvement with IFT by joining the Bluegrass Section. “I felt it was a good opportunity to get to know people in the area in the food industry and started getting involved. I have been member at large, president, and am now serving my term as past president.” Among the activities she has enjoyed most during her volunteer tenure is planning her section’s annual golf outing for the past two years. “I do love the game of golf, and so it was rewarding to have such a successful event this past May.”

As someone with a passion for novel technologies, especially in the beverage industry, Aubuchon finds much to be excited about when it comes to new developments in food science. “Food science is ever evolving and so multifaceted,” she says. “At 15 I had decided I needed to choose a career that was based on human needs—food. I have led a very focused food career, mainly in the beverage category on three continents now. It is interesting to watch how food trends do travel and evolve around the world. I have been so fortunate to be a part of this industry.”
