IFF International Flavors & Fragrances

IFF International Flavors & Fragrances Perfume Manufacturer

IFF is an American flavoring and fragrance manufacturer.

International Flavors & Fragrances was founded in 1958 by the merger of van Ameringen-Heabler and Polak & Schwarz. Polak & Schwarz was founded by Joseph Polak and Leopold Schward in 1889 and produced concentrated fruit juices in Zutphen, a small Dutch town. A.L. van Ameringen went to work for the U.S. agent of Polak & Schwarz after immigrating to America in 1917. In 1929 he later started his own company, van Ameringen-Haebler, with colleague Dr. William T. Haebler.


"We will create unique, superior and economically competitive products through world-class integration of flavor/fragrance expertise, consumer insights and brand understanding. IFF will be the industry benchmark in providing superior fragrances and flavors to a global marketplace, supporting customers with innovative solutions that improve consumers' lives and well-being." --iff.com
