A host cell comprising a benzalacetone synthase (BAS) polypeptide sequence and a 4-coumarate:CoA ligase (4CL) sequence in which one or both of the BAS polypeptide sequence and the 4CL sequence is heterologous to the host cell. Such a host cell is useful in the production of benzalacetone and/or raspberry ketone from precursors such as p-coumaric acid. Also claimed is a method of producing raspberry ketone comprising supplying a bacteria with benzalacetone.
