For the 2nd year in a row, FlavorCloud Makes the Inc. 5000, at No. 627 in 2023, With a Three-Year Revenue Growth of 936 Percent

SEATTLE, August 2023 — Inc. revealed today that FlavorCloud ranks No. 627 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Rathna Sharad, FlavorCloud CEO, and co-founder, expresses her excitement, “We are thrilled for the recognition which reflects our commitment to changing the face of cross-border ecommerce with the best of breed services to enable brands and 3PL partners worldwide. FlavorCloud is honored to stand among these incredible companies from diverse backgrounds and industries.”

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. This year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

Inc. 5000 Methodology

Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. Companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019, to qualify. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.
