In 2015, IFF acquired Ottens Flavors, a Philadelphia-based company with world-class capabilities and a strong commitment to innovative quality products. Together we will keep doing what we do best - pushing the boundaries on behalf of customers and consumers.
Floral and slightly caramelized with an intense sweet floral, mildly woody, earthy flavor
Whether enrobed in chocolate, baked into a muffin, or blended into a smoothie, banana is a crowd pleaser! According to Mintel GNPD, last year 18.8% of all new food and beverage launches were banana flavored. Ottens’ banana flavor offers the perfect blend of fresh and sweet ripe notes! It works great in combination with other fruits, such as coconut, mango, orange, strawberry and blueberry, as well as indulgent flavors like chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and peanut butter.
Banana flavor is extremely versatile, complementing a variety of applications: sweet ice creams and yogurts, refreshing beverages, warm baked goods, and crunchy snack bars.
Ottens Flavors and IFF share rich histories. Over 130 years ago, Henry Ottens recognized a need for fine quality flavors in the food industry. Now part of the IFF family, Ottens continues to deliver on its commitment to flavor innovation throughout North America.
Ottens Flavors has always had a strong connection to the Philadelphia area, and we're proud to give back to our local community and city:
Ottens Flavors’ held its annual Thanksgiving Drive for ACHIEVEability, a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization that helps low income, single parent, and homeless families in the Philadelphia area. The organization helps families become self-reliant by providing a full range of academic, employment, housing and family support services to maximize each family's growth. Through our employees’ efforts, we donated 50 Thanksgiving meals to local families in need.
Last December, we hosted an Ugly Sweater Day. Each participant made a donation to Toys for Tots, which collects toys every year for families in need during the holiday season.
The Ottens Flavors team in Philadelphia hosted a Valentine’s Day candy drive, donating treats, all packaged with love, to the Neighborhood Center in Camden, New Jersey, for the children in the after school program to enjoy. We celebrated #LoveIFF all month long.
