As a leading global creator of flavors and fragrances used in a wide variety of consumer products, millions of consumers around the world enjoy our products on a daily basis. Since the 19th century, IFF and its predecessor companies have worked closely with the world's leading brands in developing the scents and tastes for products that have become household names. Consumers experience these flavors and fragrances in beverages, sweets, dairy, and savory products, as well as fine fragrances, beauty care products, detergents, and household goods. By focusing on our core competencies of consumer insight, research & development, and creative expertise, we continue to be an integral part in helping our customers drive consumer preference and grow the equity of their brands.
IFF's predecessor companies date back to 1833. In 1958, a merger between the worldwide operations of Polak & Schwarz and van Ameringen-Haebler allowed the company, renamed International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., to become a major supplier in the flavor and fragrance business and to grow internationally almost overnight.
