About Annette R. Crymes
Annette R. Crymes is the president of Culinary Nutritionals, a consulting agency specializing in flavor development, product research and development, vanilla products and consultations, Peruvian vanilla extracts, teas, and coffees.

Crymes is also the force behind The Pompona ProjectTM LLC and Pompona Project Peru S.R.L. – an effort to reintroduce culturally significant and natural vanilla crops to the Peruvian people. The project aims to create awareness of this natural resource and develop Peruvian vanilla products for entry into the commercial domestic and international markets beginning with exhibiting the products at the ExpoAlimentaria 2023, one of the biggest food and beverage conferences in Latin America. “The idea came to me while taking a university course in the Peruvian Amazon jungle,” said Crymes. “Most indigenous people are unaware of the potential economic value of their crops.”
